"When I first met Nick he was an IP lawyer in Wellington and he introduced me to some very promising companies. What impressed me was his immense energy and 'can do' attitude. He has an excellent nose as to whether new technologies he comes across will be successful and is very keen to assist NZ companies to enter the international arena. Nick's very good at overcoming obstacles with his lateral thinking and when he says he'll do something.... he will."

Patrick Sutch
