PLEASE NOTE: We are currently unable to take on any new trade mark matters.
In this digital age where branding is everything, intellectual property is a highly valuable asset that is essential to protect.
It is not enough to have a registered domain name and business name: they do not protect your intellectual property.
Trade marks distinguish goods and services. A registered trade mark is legally enforceable and enables the owner to exercise exclusive rights to commercially use, license or sell the goods and services covered by the registration.
If you are in business and don’t have a registered trade mark, you are leaving yourself open to your IP being misused by third parties, with limited and expensive legal enforcement options. Trade mark registration is the most efficient and cost effective way to protect your intellectual property.
Ashmor Legal has significant experience in trade mark law. We can provide assistance with the following matters:
- Trade mark searches and due diligence
- Trade mark applications
- Trade mark monitoring service
How much does it cost?
Our professional fee for registration of one uncontested and unopposed trade mark in up to 5 classes is $495 + GST + statutory registration fees. Our fee includes preliminary work searching the trade marks database for existing marks and advising you about suitable classes of goods and services.
Note: We will be on leave from 5pm Friday 17 June 2016, returning 9am Monday 8 August 2016. Scheduled property settlements and existing files are unaffected, but we will be unavailable to review any new contracts and assist new clients during this period.
