We help commercialise and defend our clients’ most valuable assets: their brand, their reputation and their intellectual property.
Our Intellectual Property (IP) practice offers an integrated approach to the management, development and protection of technology and intellectual property.
We are proficient in all facets of intellectual property protection and support our clients to commercialise their intellectual property on a national and global stage. We develop effective licensing, research collaboration and defensive strategies to maintain our clients’ competitive edge.
Our team has considerable experience in defending local and international clients’ intellectual property rights from third party infringement, as well as defending against claims of intellectual property infringement. We also work very closely with our clients to develop effective marketing initiatives, including advertising and promotional campaigns, across a variety of media platforms.
We represent iconic Australian and international brands, particularly in the retail fashion industry, as well as clients who are entrepreneurs and institutes at the forefront of new industries.
“The ABL IP team has a broad range of experience, and is able to “think outside the IP box” and to leverage its experience in other practice areas for the benefit of its clients in IP disputes.”
