Advising emerging and existing businesses on all aspects of the protection, commercialisation, exploitation and management of their valuable intellectual property
We are one of only a few Australian law firms offering both intellectual property lawyers and Patent Attorneys, which means we advise fully on the most complex IP matters spanning trade marks, patents, designs, copyright and plant breeder’s rights. With significant domestic and international experience, we advise start-ups, large enterprises and government bodies on all aspects of the protection, commercialisation, exploitation and management of their IP.
Several of our IP lawyers and Patent Attorneys also have scientific or technical qualifications, including information technology, engineering and chemistry. Together, we have the capability to:
- prepare and draft patent, design and trade mark applications and to advise on patent, design and trade mark prosecution, domestically and internationally;
- assess the validity of intellectual property rights, including advising on patent novelty and inventiveness;
- commercialise intellectual property, including conducting IP due diligence, licensing transactions and the most complex public/private collaboration and research agreements; and
- enforce your intellectual property rights or to vigorously defend claims brought against your business.
