To me, getting on board early in the piece is advantageous because my range of experience as an IP attorney in both contentious patent and trade mark issues allows us to determine the approach most likely to maximise benefits to the client. Positive outcomes for our clients are what matter most to me." Martin Earley - Director, Victoria Region Manager Patent & Trade Marks Attorney

Knowing patent law is one thing; applying it to your commercial advantage is quite another.

Martin’s detailed strategies for applying a commercial slant to patent protection in the areas of ICTphysics, nanotechnology and engineering innovations allow him to cut through complexity.

Martin started his career as an examiner at IP Australia (the Australian Patent Office). His expertise spans technologies as diverse as medical and mechanical devicesconsumer goodsinformation technology, telecommunication, physics and nanotechnology. His talent for detailed conceptual analysis and practical commercial advice delivers ongoing value for all his clients.

What our clients say about us

It was my first time entering into the complex world of inventing. I made a phone call to Martin Earley at Baxter IP Patent Attorneys in Melbourne. Martin understood my complex invention very quickly. I was very impressed by how he could understand my invention in just one short phone call. He explained the step-by-step processes and actions I needed to take. Then after a few face-to-face meetings with Martin, I was armed with detailed drawings and a broad detailed description of my invention . Martin has been able to put it all together into a strong and robust provisional patent application. He has not left a rock unturned in his attention to detail. Baxter IP really has only the best patent attorneys working for them . I’d highly recommend that anyone thinking of inventing, call Baxter IP and speak to one of their patent attorneys. I sincerely believe if you want quality, well you pay for what you get.”

Very happy with the service and the positive feedback and support provided by Martin especially the fact that Martin is able to be contacted outside of office hours. The detail in the specifications is amazing and without Martins efforts I could never adequately describe the device. I was extremely happy with the interpretation Martin was able to grasp with a few photos and a description over the phone he has described the function exactly as I would.”

Baxter IP Patent Attorneys are an amazing company to work with. They have been nothing but helpful from the get go. They have worked and guided us with each step of the process and have made this journey a lot more easier. They are efficient and prompt and always go that extra mile without asking twice to do so. We look forward to working with the team at Baxter IP Patent Attorneys as we continue our project.”
