Patent and Trademark Attorneys
Our Australian Patent Attorneys are also qualified Trademark Attorneys. We are experts in a range of Intellectual Property types: Patents, Trademarks and Product Designs.
Our Patent and Trademark Attorneys are often engaged by clients with failed D.I.Y Patent and Trademark registrations because they applied by themselves, or they unfortunately used unqualified patent or trademark companies.
Some budget providers muddy the waters by saying they file a patent or trademark application, but don’t do all the legal work that we do to get the details correct, which is needed for a reasonable case against copycats.
You may not be aware, but the devil is in the detail with patents and trademarks. A missed detail in your patent or trademark application could cost you your brand or invention.
Why we’re growing so fast as a firm
We’ve also had many businesses come to us after finding out the trademark company they were using wasn’t actually legally qualified and told them that it would be okay. Eventually, in 8 months the business received an Adverse Report from the Government Office refusing to accept their application.
In addition to losing the brand or invention the business thought was theirs after 8 months, in many cases, the business incurs liability for infringement action in the Federal Court by the rightful owner of the patent or trademark.
Intellectual property applications provide you with the right, and control on your ideas, but only if the quality is there, and background research has been thorough to rule out any possibility of conflicts.
What can go wrong?
Getting the detail correct is important otherwise your Trademark Registration could be subject to non-use proceedings and could be cancelled. The Trademark Registration might also NOT be enforceable against copycats because of faulty (or missing) detail (or content).
Our clients are put at ease with our premium Patent and Trademark lawyers guiding them all the way through the process, with the correct patent and trademark advice before, after and during each step of the Government process.
Modern day standards expected by the Federal Court during Trademark proceedings are much higher than they used to be. If the Trademark Application content is not legally perfect, then the Court can void your Trademark Registration, and you will lose your case.
The sad truth is many Trademark Registrations render no protection for the brand, just you don’t know it yet. That’s why we are alerting you to it as we believe important business Trademark assets should be reliable and not be voided when needed. Whether you are in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Perth, Darwin, Adelaide or Hobart, our Trademark Lawyers take care of all these aspects to deliver excellent results.
Where are the risks?
Too many businesses unwittingly wear unknown Trademark litigation exposure to competitors who may actually hold the “true” entitlement to own, control and trade with the Trademark Attorney as required by the Trademark Act 1995 (Cth). We have reported many Federal Court cases where this has occurred. See our blogs.
Trademark Registration also protects company names, business names, brand names, logos, slogans, aspects of packaging and so forth. If you don’t want to lose goodwill and reputation you’re developing, then contact our Trademark Attorneys today.
