Nicole’s Experience

  • Is someone infringing your IP rights ?

    We can assist you to settle IP infringement matters before they proceed to Court, or prosecute an infringer if they don’t respond to demands.

  • Are you prepared for a data breach?

    Do you want to reduce your risk of having to do a Mandatory Data Breach Notification, reduce the likelihood of a fine by the Privacy Commissioner and save your reputation? We can help you prepare for data breaches, teach you what to do in the event of a data breach, educate your staff and mitigate your risks if a data breach occurs.

  • Have you suffered a breach and want to reduce the likelihood of a fine by the Privacy Commissioner and retrieve your data?

    The Privacy Commissioner has wide powers to issue substantial fines and enforceable undertakings on personal information breaches. We can help you reduce the chances of the Privacy Commissioner issuing fines and help you save your reputation in the unfortunate event of a breach of personal information. We can also help you recover the taken material so that no breach notification is necessary.

  • Do you want to significantly reduce the cost of Copyright Infringement court cases?

    Establishing your rights in the event of a Copyright Infringement action can be expensive and time consuming. We can show you how to reverse the onus of proof in copyright rights infringement proceedings to substantially reduce your court costs.

  • COCODUST was represented by Nicole Murdoch exceptionally well. Although completely professional, I felt that Nicole was very personable with me and treated me as friend rather than a number. Nicole went out of her way to understand our business and our business needs. Her advice was very sound and she was able to immediately ease all my concerns. She is one of the most intelligent individuals I have had the pleasure of getting to know and is truly exceptional in her field. I feel very confident recommending Nicole as I know her high standards and quality advice will more than satisfy your needs.
