About Chris


Chris Bolden is a senior corporate and commercial lawyer and has considerable experience in the areas of intellectual property, information technology, business structures, licensing, and commercial litigation.

Chris has worked at a senior level in a number of prominent boutique Melbourne Law firms and operated his own legal practice for many years. He is committed to providing pro-active advice and service to clients in a manner that adds value to their business.

He has practised as a Solicitor for over thirty years and has acted for a number of high-profile clients during that time. Chris enjoys negotiating and drafting a range of commercial agreements, whether relatively simple or more complex. He has considerable experience in assisting clients to establish an appropriate business structure, and in negotiating and drafting intellectual property and information technology licensing agreements, as well as shareholder and investment agreements.

Although his main focus is on helping clients to stay out of court, Chris has a lot of litigation experience in most court jurisdictions. This enables Chris to help clients to resolve matters quickly and efficiently, avoiding unnecessary costs and wastage of time if it becomes necessary to go to court to protect a client’s interests.

Chris has a wealth of experience in intellectual property and information technology law, particularly copyright, trademarks, intellectual property disputes and oppositions, and e-commerce, which can help clients take advantage of business opportunities on the internet and in e-commerce.

His practical approach together with his considerable experience in a wide range of commercial matters enables Chris to assist clients in a wide range of areas while being able to apply his considerable experience in intellectual property, information technology and commercial law.

Outside of being a lawyer

Outside of the law, Chris can often be found walking along the foreshore paths around St Kilda, and also enjoys rollerblading and skiing from time to time (ageing knees permitting!), movies, watching cricket, Aussie Rules football and rugby, and is a keen amateur photographer.
