We are proud to announce that our firm has been selected as the preferred legal services provider by the Australian Furniture Association.

In recent weeks, the Australian Furniture Association conducted a survey to better understand their stakeholders.

One of the key requests from the members of the Australian Furniture Association and the broader furnishing industry community has been for the Australian  Furniture Association to secure access to specialists in the area of intellectual property law across a range of platforms.

We are pleased to announce that Australian Furniture Association has selected our firm, Sharon Givoni Consulting, as the preferred supplier of legal services for its members.

We are a boutique law firm specialising in commercial law matters, specifically around intellectual property, and have extensive experience in the areas of furniture design, manufacturing, importing and retailing.  There are many ways to protect the intellectual property assets of your furniture designs and we have strong expertise in this area.
