About Us

In the Beginning

Ahearn Fox began with Tom Ahearn in 1951 who worked as a technical assistant with G. R. Cullen & Co. Tom quickly became a partner of G. R. Cullen & Co. and was the only qualified registered patent attorney residing in Queensland at the time. 

Travelling around the region

While our head office is in Brisbane, we have branch offices on the Gold Coast and the Sunshine Coast. Our patent and trade mark attorneys are happy to meet with clients at their offices and factories, and often travel south to the Northern Rivers district of New South Wales, west to Toowoomba and north to Maroochydore. If needed they even travel further.  

Ahearn Fox gets its name

Tom formed his own practice in 1957 under the name T. G. Ahearn & Co and has worked continuously in patents, trade marks and designs until recently. Dan Fox worked with Tom for a short time and then became a partner in 1997 when the firm became known as Ahearn Fox. Since then, Dan has been running the practice.
