A patent protects the concept behind your idea as long as it’s new, useful, and demonstrates an inventive step. If successfully registered, a patent affords you exclusive rights to exploit the invention for the lifetime of the patent – usually up to 20 years.

If you’ve got an idea worthy of protection, we can assist with patentability advice regarding your invention and pre-filing ‘prior art’ base searches in Australia and internationally. We’re also here to assist you to file and prosecute your patent application locally and all around the globe, including advising on infringement and or enforcement issues where required or providing representation in patent disputes.
