IP Practice Areas
PROTECTING INvention and INNOVATION
Protecting inventions and innovation is our bread and butter. We are experts at drafting, filing and prosecuting patents across a wide range of technology areas, in almost every country of the world. We are registered to act directly for clients before IP Australia and the Intellectual Property Office of New Zealand (IPONZ).
IP PORTFOLIO MANAGEMENT
Organisations with a large and complex portfolio of intellectual property rights can struggle to keep on top of all issues, deadlines, etc., making their portfolio feel like a burden rather than an asset. We have great technology and efficient processes to help lighten your load.
BRANDING AND GOODWILL
We can help you protect and defend your brand and goodwill, through the filing, registering and defending of trade marks and domain names. We can also help you with strategies to ensure that you do not fall foul of existing rights.
Design is a creative process that is often overlooked as an area of innovation. Australian designers have a long and proud history of innovative, practical and aesthetically pleasing design. We can help you protect your designs.
DEFENDING YOUR IP RIGHTS
Unfortunately, the unauthorized use of inventions, brands, designs and other intellectual assets like domain names is becoming a much more common problem for Australian and New Zealand business. We can help you devise strategies to minimise the unauthorized use of your rights and infringement. We also have deep experience in online marketplace takedowns and anti-cybersquatting.
GRANTS AND TAX INCENTIVES
Intellectual property protection can be an expensive process. Australian governments provide schemes to help defray some of the cost. We can assist you in accessing some of these schemes, through a network of select associates.
