Overseas Attorneys

WE WORK FOR NOT ONLY YOUR CLIENTS BUT ALSO YOUR FIRM

Based on our extensive experience in dealing with international associates for our clients’ matters, we understand what you expect from us exactly when we work on your clients’ matters in Australia. We are dedicated to providing quality IP services in a cost-effective and timely manner to benefit not only your clients but also your firm.

 

QUICK RESPONSE & FAST TURNAROUND

We know how you would be frustrated in waiting for a response from your overseas associates in respect of your clients’ matter. We guarantee to provide a fast turnaround time, especially responding to you within 1 business day. If you are in the same time zone, this timeframe would be shorter.

 

FIXED FEE & NO HIDDEN COSTS

We do not want to damage your client relationship due to any unexpected bills from us. Before starting your clients’ work, we will always provide you with our fixed or capped quotation including official fees which you can confidently relay to your client. Where it is not possible to fix our fees we will provide a realistic estimate so that your client can set a budget.

 

Unlike many firms, we do not charge for:

  • file opening, managing or archiving costs
  • regular postage, facsimile transmissions, phone calls
  • printing, photocopying, envelopes and labels
  • diarising deadlines in our system and issuing reminders

Our fixed fee policy can be found here.  If you wish to receive our Fee Schedule of Australian Patent, Trade Mark and/or Design, please submit our online enquiry.

 

QUALITY SERVICES

Having extensive experience in the IP field, our team of IP professionals is well qualified to handle your client’s IP matters.

 

We can help your client with:

  • filing and prosecuting trade marks, patents and design applications
  • representing them in opposition and removal proceedings
  • enforcing IP rights or defending infringement actions
  • Australian domain name dispute resolution

 

LONG TERM RELATIONSHIP & RECIPROCAL WORK

Building a long term relationship with you is very important to us. Our aim is to be your business partner, not just a filing agent. If you have any questions about Australian IP law, please feel free to contact us.

 

FREE ADDRESS FOR SERVICE

For most IP prosecution matters in Australia, overseas applicants are required to provide IP Australia with an Australian address for service. For those who are merely looking for an address for service in Australia, we offer free address for service, which means you can use our address as your client’s Australian address for service at no charge.

 

This service includes:

  • requesting for IP Australia to enlist ourselves as your client’s Australian address for service
  • confirming change of address for service with IP Australia and forwarding a copy of it to you by email
  • receiving any documents on your client’s behalf from IP Australia and third parties
  • forwarding a soft copy of those documents to you by email
