A multi-award winning Australian intellectual property practice.
Winner: Intellectual Property Team of the Year at the Australian Law Awards 2017, 2015
What we do
We are a full service IP practice with expertise across all major IP specialties including copyright, patents, brand protection and trade marks, false advertising, food and product regulatory, breach of confidence, database protection, commercial IP licensing, product liability, cyber security and anti-counterfeiting.
We have a class leading success rate in trial and appellate litigation in the Australian market across the IP disciplines. We also have a strong track record of solving and settling complex IP disputes without litigation or in parallel to litigation. No other practice has more experience in the Australian market using novel strategies (direct negotiation, advocacy) and extraordinary litigation procedures (search orders, asset freezing orders and preliminary discovery where infringement is suspected).
Our commitment to client service is paramount and involves clearly articulated strategies, close matter management, transparent communications and cost predictability.
