About Baxter IP Patent & Trade Mark Attorneys

About Our Firm

A patent attorney firm for innovators

Innovative technologies, new product development and bright ideas that are both unique and highly commercial are a rare and valuable commodity. If you or a team member have invented or developed an impactful innovation, you need a patent attorney firm that:

  1. has a deep understanding of your area of technology, that can get to the core of your idea quickly and provide careful patent & trade mark attorney counsel;
  2. that is experienced in the patent end game – negotiation, licensing and enforcement; and
  3. understands and can integrate your IP with the entire innovation process from protection to commercialisation, capital raising and development.

You need an IP firm that has walked the walk.

A trade mark attorney firm for distinctive brands:

Often equally or even more valuable than unique ideas, are distinctive brands that are recognised by their target markets. If your business has created or is using a brand you do not want others to use, you need a trade mark attorney firm that:

  1. Can help you choose the right brand or type of trade marks to file based on the learning arising from the team’s voluminous track record of trade mark experience
  2. Is highly responsive and transparent on pricing

Advice reinforced by IP enforcement and litigation experience

We work closely with our subsidiary IP litigation practice, Interface Legal, to defend and enforce client IP rights, effectively providing end-to-end service for contentious matters. We filter the learnings and knowledge from contentious cases and patent litigation back up to our patent and trade mark attorneys, so we can draft stronger, more defensible patent and trade mark applications. If the ability to enforce your intellectual property is part of your commercial risk mitigation strategy, you are in no better hands than Baxter IP.
