Intellectual Property and Brand Protection

At Coleman Greig we are committed to protecting your greatest intangible assets - working with you to proactively identify, document and register your IP rights. Our experienced and highly skilled lawyers provide you with both legal and commercial strategies and solutions to minimise the risk of damage or misuse of your intellectual property.    

Coleman Greig's intellectual property team consists of commercial lawyers and a registered Trade Marks Attorney. We can identify potential trademark issues and the best ways to protect your brand from the outset, including social media risk management. We can provide advice and representation regarding ownership and protection of inventions and designs, and, once your branding is confirmed, we can register your intellectual property rights including trademarks and business names.

If you are interested in buying or selling a business, we can undertake intellectual property audits, and draft confidentiality and non-disclosure agreements as part of the due diligence process.

Our specialist intellectual property lawyers can also work with you to ensure that your intellectual property is not open to attack. We regularly work alongside employers, contractors and franchisors to identify risk, develop risk management plans and ensure safeguards are in place. In addition, our team can assist you and your team with compliance.

As a member of First Law International, we can ensure that your assets are protected both in Australia and overseas, with access to a global network of over 75 independent full-service, high quality law firms.
