Our commercial practice group has extensive experience in advising on the obligations, protections available and risks associated with personal property and securities legislation and how it relates to various financing arrangements, transactions and businesses. We are committed to providing a practical and commercial approach to deliver our services in a tailored manner to suit our client’s business needs and risk appetites.
The term ‘intellectual property’ refers to creative and intellectual efforts protected by legislative and common law rights. It covers trade marks, patents, designs, copyright, plant breeders rights, circuit layout rights, confidential information and trade secrets. Intellectual property of any business has value, but it takes a bit of proactive effort to maximise that value.
We are well aware of the intimate details of intellectual property assets and our experts thrive on the exciting and quirky nature of intellectual property laws. We work with individuals and businesses across all stages of growth to provide timely, accurate and practical advice on protecting, registering, defending and commercialising that asset. In the shrinking commercial world, this also includes being mindful of the existence of intellectual property online.
