PATENTS


A multifaceted approach to patent protection

Obtaining patent protection is critical for an organisation of any size. It protects your competitive position, aids in securing revenue streams and recognises intellectual ingenuity.

Our team of patent attorneys bring a ‘hands on’ understanding and approach gained through their various backgrounds across science, engineering and technology backgrounds. This gives us a great depth of expertise to cover innovation in almost all industry areas, including life sciences, biotechnology, pharmaceutical, technology, resources, branding and creative, mechanical and electrical engineering fields.

Our goal – protect, grow, defend.

We work with our clients on the development of their local and international patent strategy, ensuring robust protection and growth across the entire life cycle of a patent.
Bringing significant experience in defending and enforcing our clients’ rights in patent oppositions and disputes, we also prepare knowledge based, accurate patent specifications and design applications locally and overseas. This includes advising on the patentability of new technologies, as well as cost-effective and commercially relevant strategies to get the most value from your commercial assets. We also advise on managing risks associated with infringement of rights owned by competitors and other companies, as well as monitoring competitor activity where it’s needed.
