We provide a range of services in the field of Intellectual Property
A patent can provide protection for a physical product or technical method which is both new and inventive.
We provide advice on whether your invention may be patentable, as well as preparing and filing patent applications and assisting with prosecution of the applications before the Australian Patent Office and Patent Offices overseas.
A trade mark is any sign used to distinguish products of one trader from those of another, including company and business names, logos and slogans.
We provide advice on the best approach to protect your trade marks via appropriate trade mark registrations and proper use within your business.
A registered design is a monopoly granted in relation the visual appearance of the product. A registered design therefore protects the way a product looks, rather than the way it works.
