Intellectual Property

We work with a wide range of creative clients whose ideas, brands and products are successful in local, national and international markets. We deliver strategic advice which helps them profit through identifying intellectual property (IP) opportunities and protecting their IP rights.

Brand clearance, protection and enforcement matters are at the heart of our practice. We filed our first trade mark application over half a century ago. Today our award winning IP team acts for local and international clients in brand related matters across Australasia.

Our brand practice is part of our wider ‘soft IP’ and marketing law services. We help our clients with non-contentious and contentious issues around IP ownership, commercialisation and marketing.

Clients of the team include successful local companies such as Trade Me and Smiths City and Sealord Group, as well as international corporations and associates from around the globe.

Our team members are active in the Australasian and international IP industry, as members of IPSANZ and INTA.
