We are delighted to announce the appointment of two new directors to MacLachlan & Donaldson.

Carla MacLachlan has been with the firm since 1991 and works as a Trade Mark Attorney, specialising particularly in assisting local start-up businesses protecting their intellectual property. Carla has a background in marketing which makes her particularly suited to this role. She recognizes the problems and pitfalls which a person only setting up a business cannot begin to appreciate.

Jonathan White is a Patent Attorney who began his career in New Zealand before he joined MacLachlan & Donaldson in 2006. Jonathan specialised in registering and licensing patents in electronics, IT and mechanical engineering. He is a regular speaker at IP, trade, technology and export events.

In welcoming the new directors, Managing Director, Bernadette Walsh, said:

Carla and Jonathan are  both excellent Attorneys with extensive experience in their respective areas of expertize and their addition to the Board of Directors will be of great benefit to MacLachlan & Donaldson”.
