About Us

Corporate & Commercial IP Law, Trade Marks & Copyright

Linkwells is a Sydney-based corporate and commercial law firm specialising in intellectual property law.   Our lawyers have worked in top and medium-tier law firms, as well as specialist IP practices in Sydney, Brisbane and Adelaide. 

Linkwells aims to change the way legal services are delivered in Australia.  Our lawyers are proactive, hands on, flexible, energetic and practical in the way that we interact and work with our clients.  

We recognise that the way most current legal practices operate may no longer suit modern businesses.   Our lawyers are not desk bound and prefer to consult clients at the clients' premises, allowing us unique insight into their businesses so that we can better assist them.

Our lawyers are not restricted by the traditional model of legal practice and the pressures of time billing.  Where possible, we offer packaged services so that our clients can have peace of mind and confidence to know that their matters are being handled on quotation basis and at fixed costs. 

We pride ourselves in delivering sensible, cost-effective solutions.   We are attentive to our clients' needs and passionate about their businesses.  We strongly believe in the importance of cultivating and maintaining a great relationship, 'linking well' with our clients.
