About Us

A different kind of law firm

The world’s leading entrepreneurs and companies are driven by vision and goals that they want to turn to reality. mdp tailors our suite of services of intellectual property (IP), commercialisation and corporate law according to our clients’ needs to help them fulfil their ambition.

Our lean approach combined with our lawyers’ excellent credentials and practical advisory skills are the reason our clients choose us time and again. In fact, we have long-standing relationships with those who seek our advice. 

“mdp is a unique boutique practice that provides the intellectual competence of larger firms together with a personalised service that is engaging and comfortable. The personality of the firm is reflected across the entire team – or more correctly the team creates the personality of the firm. Competent, confident, engaged, and not a hint of hubris. It is a pleasure to work with them.”

Gary Skinner, CEO of ICEE Containers
