We have a broad range of experience in corporate, commercial and intellectual property areas.  Our lawyers have dealt with businesses spanning over a wide variety of industries, including fashion, automotive, food and entertainment, information technology and telecommunications.

Our interest and expertise in intellectual property law, particularly trade marks, branding, copyright, domain names and confidentiality, give our clients the competitive advantage to succeed and excel in the world of modern business.

Intellectual property can be a number of things, ranging from a special logo, name or design to distinguish a business, to a secret process, a computer program, an innovation or a piece of literature.  Most Australian companies understand the importance of intellectual property, but often do very little to protect it.
