IP Searching

IP searching is often a key step in assessing your intellectual property position. We provide a wide range of searching solutions in Australia (and other jurisdictions).

Targeted IP searching enables us to map the field of existing rights and technologies in your specific area. IP searching permits us to assess the registrability of your inventions, designs and trade marks and can also be used to help you keep up to date with your competitors’ positions and reduce the likelihood of infringing existing intellectual property rights. IP searching is an important step in the development of a new brand, design or invention.
