Since 2007 IPT Law has been providing legal services and advice to clients in all jurisdictions of Australia and to some foreign clients. Paul draws upon his 14 years of experience as a lawyer and 10 years experience in the Royal Australian Air Force and defence industry.

A significant proportion of his legal experience has been in commercial litigation, intellectual property, technology and migration law. In his practice he has developed a reputation for providing innovative and commercially sound solutions to legal issues.

IPT Law provides legal services in these specialised and discrete practice areas. Most of the legal services offered by IPT Law can be provided on a fixed fee for service basis rather than the traditional and inefficient hourly billing offered by most law firms.

The legal experience of IPT Law’s Principal spans more than 14 years in Melbourne, Hong Kong, Viet Nam and Brisbane. Clients have included globally recognised brand owners, large multinational corporations, NGOs, government authorities and individuals. He has practised as both a solicitor and as a barrister appearing before Courts and Tribunals at most levels in Australia.

Prior to gaining admission as a lawyer IPT Law’s Principal was an F-111 navigator in the Royal Australian Air Force. During his service in the RAAF he had a management responsibility for the software support of various aircraft systems within the RAAF fleet, including the F-111 and F/A-18 fighter aircraft. It is from this experience that he developed his specialist skills in the technology and intellectual property fields.

The Principal, Paul A Norris-Ongso, is a Registered Migration Agent, MARN 0601483. He has worked in Vietnam and Australia as a Registered Migration Agent advising visa applicants and corporate clients on the full range of visa options for temporary and permanent migration to Australia.

Paul enabled us to achieve our dreams by helping us bring our babies home. We had twins born through surrogacy in America and Paul explained everything we needed to do and helped us every step of the way. He was always contactable and went out of his way to make it happen as smoothly as possible. They are now 9 months old and both American and Australian citizens. Thank you Paul for making our family complete!
