Intellectual Property

Your intellectual property may be your most valuable asset, provided it is properly identified and realised.

We specialise in identifying the valuable parts of your brands, innovations and intangible assets and securing patent, trade marks, design and other forms of protection both internationally and locally.

One of our definitive strengths is our recognition of the link between the intellectual property advice we provide and the impact it could have on the overall commercial success of a client’s business. We work closely with you to develop branding strategies and intellectual property protection, commercialisation and prosecution strategies that form part of the ‘bigger picture’.

Our point of difference is that we provide intellectual property advice that is integrated with broader commercialisation and structuring advice. This ensures your hold your assets in entities that are risk and tax effective and investment and divestment ready, and in a way that supports your overall growth strategy.
