We are registered for practice in Australia and New Zealand. Therefore, we file applications for patents, trade marks and designs directly in these countries.

However, it is very common for our clients to need IP protection and other IP services in other countries around the world. For example, they may have identified that certain countries are ideal markets for their products, or that their products can be made, or processes can be used, in certain countries.

We have a network of associate attorneys around the world.  We instruct them to file applications and provide other IP services in their countries on behalf of our clients, and they instruct us to provide similar serivices in Australia and New Zealand for their clients. While we rely on their expertise based on the laws in their countries, we are very pro-active in our communications with them, to achieve the best, most cost-effective results for our clients.
