Many clients move to our Patent and Trademark Attorney Firm because we invest the extra time to protect them longer term position. It also frees them up to concentrate on there business and they sleep better at night knowing the legals are being taken care of properly.
Our firm’s goal is to minimise litigation risk and exposure. We also strive to navigate you through all the hidden traps and gaps that many business owners miss with their applications.
Applying 23 years of knowledge in applying for new Patent Applications or Trademark Applications really does make a difference.
For example using particular wording or grammatical expression may have been fatal during a trademark legal case. You wouldn’t be aware of this. We follow the legislation updates, Court cases, and attend patent attorney conferences to ensure our clients benefit from the latest correct content for our client’s patent, design and trademark applications.
It is not the Government’s responsibility to advise you of content mistakes, flaws or whether the patent or trademark is technically correct. IP Australia processes applications but do not check your invention or trademark for flaws which make enforcement problematic or cause the rights to be cancelled at Court.
You get what you pay for.
You could find, after 8-18 months of waiting, that all your invested money has been wasted, and you are in an expensive conflict.
You could burn years if repeated filings are needed, and you will never know if it was legally correct or if you missed some vital legal detail, until the matter goes to Court or a Barrister on the other side looks at what you lodged.
You could find when you seek to enforce that there are flaws in content that don’t allow your Barrister to argue the case, and you lose compensation.
You could find you didn’t know what compliance or detail is required for patents, trademarks and design. This could be fatal and allow a Third Party to point out the flaw to have your intellectual property removed/cancelled.
Businesses often also refer to Patent and Trademark Attorneys as Patent and Trademark Lawyers.
