Boutique - style patent services...

We provide expert advice on the creation, management, enforcement and commercialisation of your intellectual property rights, including patents and designs.

…with the certainty of large commercial firm resources

We are the only Australian patent attorney company that has access to a large full-service corporate law firm. Thanks to our strategic relationship with Herbert Smith Freehills, we can provide you with Australia’s best IP litigators and commercial practitioners and to all other related areas of commercial law including competition and anti-trust, tax, mergers and acquisitions, venture capital and equity capital markets.

More than a patent attorney

Whether we start working with you at inception of your business or at a much later stage, we will invest our time into getting to know your business and how it works. We like this approach because this is the best way we know how to become a strategic advisor to your business.

Importantly, we believe that the patent attorney relationship should involve more than a mere following of client instruction. Moreover, our vision is to become an integral part of our client’s business, as in this relationship we are better placed to identify the risks and opportunities that are otherwise unclear in a relationship based solely on patent attorney response to client instruction.

Depth of expertise

Our patent attorneys have years of expertise, significant qualifications and proven records of success in your industry. They understand your technology, whether it’s a pharmaceutical compound or a new manufacturing process, so they can quickly identify and mitigate risk, and help you realise the full potential of an idea. Find out more about our expertise.
