Argosy Legal’s professional team is led by George Ilk.
Over the past 40 years George has had experience as a legal practice principal and partner, in-house corporate counsel, law lecturer and as an executive director, chief executive officer and company secretary of unlisted public companies and several private companies in a broad range of industry sectors. During that time George has also owned and operated his own small to medium business enterprises. This range of experience gives George a highly evolved insight into the needs of business owners.
As a client of Argosy Legal you will have the benefit of George’s insight, experience, training and knowledge to provide you with sound, practical and commercially focussed advice.
George’s formal qualifications are a bachelor’s degree in law (LL.B. 1977) and a master’s degree in law (LL.M. 2004) both from Sydney University. He is admitted as a legal practitioner in New South Wales (since 1977), Queensland (since 1999), the Federal Courts of Australia (since 1991) and the High Court of Australia (since 1991) and is a member of the Queensland Law Society and the Association of Corporate Counsel Australia. George holds an Unrestricted Practising Certificate issued by the Queensland Law Society.
In 1997 George was accredited by the New South Wales Law Society as a specialist in property law. After relocating to Brisbane in 1999, George’s specialist accreditation subsequently lapsed and is no longer current. However, George continues to maintain a strong interest in property law both in Queensland and in New South Wales.
Today, through his participation in the PallyGroup Australia IP Joint Venture, George is playing an active role in the commercialisation of ground-breaking technology (patent applied for) that has the capability to apply waste heat from coal fired power generation plants to create virtually emission free electricity.
