Intellectual Property & Trademarks

It’s easy to forget the intangible aspects of your business that hold value – your brand, your ideas and your offerings. However, it’s just as important to protect these as your equipment or the stock on your shelf. Whatever your business does, securing your intellectual property is critical to the growth, viability, and reputation of your business.

Frequently Asked Questions

Here are answers to some of the questions we hear most often. If you’ve got a question that isn’t covered, hit us up and we’ll be happy to help.
It’s legal protection for your branding – you could trademark a logo, a phrase, a word, a sound, packaging or any combination of these. It gives you the right to exclusively use it and legally challenge anyone who tries to use it.
There’s no set price and it can vary greatly depending on factors such as what type of IP and if you’d like it protected in just Australia or other countries. Contact us for some guidance.
In addition to a trademark, organisations or individuals can file a patent for an invention such as a device, substance, method or process. For something tangible that’s visually unique, you could also file a registered design.
A trade secret is a piece of private information that gives your company a competitive edge. For example, a secret recipe. Trade secrets are not registered with a governing body. You can, however, apply secrecy and confidentiality agreements to them.
