Patent & Trademark Attorney

I contacted Baxter IP Patent Attorneys following a previous fruitless, lengthy and expensive experience with one of the large specialist IP firms in a previous business.I have now engaged Baxter IP Patent Attorneys for two projects, one simple, and one complex. In both cases Chris has demonstrated his talent for rapidly gaining a depth of subject understanding and a grasp of the important issues prior to producing and lodging highly regarded patent documents.I have no hesitation in recommending Baxter IP Patent Attorneys.

Bruce Johansson from CleanPoint Holdings Pty Ltd

The online social networking space that we operate in is highly competitive and is evolving rapidly. Great ideas can lead to enormous competitive advantages but they can also be copied very easily. We wanted a way to protect our inventions from being copied by the competition and patents seemed the most obvious mechanism.As a small business every dollar matters so we thought rather than look for a patent attorney we’d research how to submit a patent application ourselves. The world of patents proved to be a midfield and highly technical. We soon realised it would be a total false economy going it alone and hence we sought out Baxter IP.After engaging Baxter IP and working with Chris and Jon on our patent we felt totally reassured that we were doing the right thing. Because different jurisdictions have different laws regarding the patentability of software our patent was written in such a way that different parts of it would target the different jurisdictions to accommodate local laws. This is something we felt we have gained enormously by using Baxter IP.I’d highly recommend using Baxter IP to any software company that’s looking to protect their software inventions.

Francesco Fiorenza / the Director of Flame Pty Ltd

Networked Infrastructure National Architecture (NINA) Pty Ltd engaged Baxter IP Patent Attorneys to draft and lodge its patent application for its modular integrated curb and ducting systems for electrical, data, gas and water infrastructure. Baxter IP Patent Attorneys was able to appreciate both the novelty of the invention and the broad scope of its application. This was successfully incorporated in the initial filing to give us the broadest scope to defend and develop our invention. We would readily recommend their IP and patent services.

Guy Dixon / Inventor of Networked Infrastructure National Architecture Pty Ltd

After receiving an introduction to Chris from a highly respected and successful VC, I found Chris to be a very professional and gifted operator who sincerely desires to deliver a first class job. Upon seeking his opinion on a very detailed and complex matter, I found him to be thoughtful, thorough and able to grasp the vision behind what I asked him to advise me on.

Anthony Harrison / Managing Director of Brandwave Pty Ltd

As a technology company reliant on IP for our success, it is paramount to retain competent and experienced IP advisors and services. Baxter IP Patent Attorneys were able to guide us through our technically demanding patent space quickly and efficiently, while maintaining excellent feedback and communication throughout. We are happy with both the advice and services provided by Baxter IP Patent Attorneys, and will continue to engage Chris and his team for our future IP needs.

Leo McHugh, PhD / Highlight Ventures Pty Ltd / Adventure Aerospace Pty Ltd

We recently engaged Baxter IP Patent Attorneys to manage and direct our Intellectual Property needs. We found Chris to be very responsive, committed and diligent in his approach to providing us with direction to matters that became urgent. Chris demonstrated that he could offer creative solutions to solve problems and meet some very tight deadlines. To achieve this it is evident that Chris has valuable skills and knowledge that can only be gained through extensive experience. Chris is currently preparing a global strategic direction for the Popcake suite of products. Chris comprehended future issues, and there are numerous conflicting factors, and reported these to Board of Directors without ambiguity and clear future corporate direction.

Marek Szymanski / the Managing Director of Popcake Int Pty Ltd

From the initial meeting through to the lodging of a patent I have been very impressed with Baxter IP Patent Attorneys’s punctuality of program, utmost professional attention to detail and above all their width of thinking.

Bruce Hanlee from X2 Design Pty Ltd

I would like to thank you and your team on the professional way you have helped me in developing a patent. I would also like to say that you gave me all the correct informatin on how patents work and the costing and left it up to me if I wanted to proceed or not with the patent. I would also highly recommend you and your company to anyone who is thinking about doing a patent.

Ben Halliday from Austa Pty Ltd

Thank you for your excellent and efficient service. Your response time was extremely fast and the information presented was clear. We will use your services again.

Eddy Feligueira from Smartech Designs Pty Ltd

We approached Baxter IP Patent Attorneys to work with us on the registration of a patent. During Chris’ preliminary searches he found a similar product already in the marketplace that our searches failed to find. Although we were unable to patent our product, Chris’s honesty and professionalism saved us thousands of dollars in unnecessary searches and registration fees. If you are looking for a Patent Attorney, I would highly recommend Baxter IP Patent Attorneys.

Stuart Thomson from

I cannot recommend Chris Baxter’s skills as a patent attorney highly enough. Chris’ strength lies with his ability to work closely with the inventor. Too many patents are open to unlicensed use because a clever copier can avoid infringement by exploiting weaknesses in an invention’s specification and claims. Avoiding these weaknesses requires the ability to foresee alternative ways in which the invention could be used without infringing the patent.

Dr Ian Doig from Pumping Solutions

We decided to invest in a patent for our LC888 window lock. Baxter IP Patent Attorneys assisted us with the process which can be very involved, their advice was helpful and we would recommend their services.

Craig Levey / the Manager of LEVCOL

Just wanted to pass on my thanks to you and your team for the work done in putting together the provisional patent application. The level of work and detail has exceeded my expectations.

Kristian Hedge

Thank you for your professionalism and service with providing Focus Driving School with its first Trademark. We received the Certificate of Registration yesterday and we are all very excited about it. We look forward to implementing the R symbol on our stationary and have displayed the Certificate in our office.

Helen Jancev / Operations Manager of Focus Driving School

I am very pleased with the result of Chris Baxter’s work and would highly recommend him to anyone seeking to own intellectual property. My product was quite basic and the chance of getting a certified innovation patent certificate was slim. My first attempt was unsuccessful however with Chris’s expert knowledge, he was able to remove the grounds of objection and the claim got accepted. I received the news from him on New Year’s Eve which made a great start to this year. Great work Chris!

Tony Gouverneur from Tidy Tradie Work Mat

It is our pleasure to be testament to the absolute Professionalism, Integrity and Expertise, that we have experienced working with Baxter IP Patent Attorneys. Chris has continually gone ‘Above and Beyond’ in his response to our needs. For us being new to the Patent process, it was very reassuring having Chris give us advice, and keeping us informed and up-to-date every step of the way. We have no doubt that his involvement has considerably improved our chances of success. We look forward to working with him on future projects.

Monique & Kristy Pastor from Twinnovations

Thank you very much for all your help with the provisional patent application. From my point of view this process could not have worked out better. Your approach to draft a comprehensive specification, even if it is “only” a provisional application, makes sense to me. Also because of your aeronautical engineering background you understood the sail-by-wire system immediately. I’m sure this saved a lot of time and might even lead to better protection of the idea.

Karsten Jarke

I really appreciate all the intelligent and practical advice you gave me concerning the process involved in protecting trade marks and intellectual property… I found you extremely honest and professional and I would have no hesitation in recommending you to any of my associates.

Andrew Vines

Thanks for the huge effort you put into this... this was critical to the timing of the project.

Project Engineer of a global medical devices company

I found Baxter IP Patent Attorneys to be very honest regarding my patent idea and the direction I should take. Their availability to answer questions I had throughout the process was also most helpful.

Con Staveris

Chris helped us in a very professional and a very personal way I feel part of the family.

Ean Herniman

Thank you for being so proactive in your support of this project and for your considerable effort in preparing a very thorough application.

Research & Technology Manager of a global medical devices company

If you believe in your idea you need to trust someone. I too that leap of faith and laid my idea on the line to Chris Baxter who appointed me his associate Jon Wright. It was a relaxed atmosphere and the best thing I have done. These guys are champions. We expect my now robust specification is fast progressing up to the PCT application status. Six months ago this seemed but a fantasy.

Milton Facaris

Baxter IP was recommended to me and I can understand why. Securing a trade mark and patent for my intellectual property was both exciting and bewildering and Chris clearly explained the necessary steps to obtain both. He was helpful and patient answering many questions through this long process.

Diane Abello

I recently filed a patent application with the help of Chris Baxter and his team at Baxter IP Patent Attorneys. Having had no knowledge or experience of how to go about this, I was surprised and relieved by the professional and caring advice and guidance I was given by Chris and Jon, with their help I have been able to take each step to market my product with a lot more confidence. I highly recommend a consultation with Chris and his team as a first step to getting a product patent.

Mary Ayoub

Luke Miles / Director of LME Electrical Contractors Pty Ltd “Both my wife and I have used Baxter IP Patent Attorneys for two separate projects (Wheely Clean Golf and Shnooki Design) we have been working on over the last 12 months. We have found them to be extremely professional, reliable and helpful. Not only have they successfully helped us in filing a patent, they have also assisted us with designing, engineering, and manufacturing our products. We have always found Baxter IP Patent Attorneys to be very easy to deal with, and nothing is ever a problem for them. It has been a pleasure dealing with Baxter IP Patent Attorneys and I would have no hesitation in recommending them.

Luke Miles / Director of LME Electrical Contractors Pty Ltd

Baxter IP Patent Attorneys have been so professional throughout this whole process. It’s been great to be able to bounce back ideas and have all our questions and concerns answered so promptly. Great company! It’s been a good experience.

Jasmin Colley

Finding my company in need of IP advice was daunting.. Baxter IP Patent Attorneys took the time to explain the needs of my business to me. The result was trademarking and and patenting unique designs for my jewellery brand Uberkate. I now feel confident that my Intellectual Property is protected. I would highly recommend Baxter IP Patent Attorneys to help anyone looking to trademark or patent their precious ideas.

Kate Sutton / Director of Uberkate

For a small company like ours, to be able to access the combination of high intellect, extensive engineering knowledge and hard commercial experience in the one office is extremely valuable. The patents and licences are stronger as a result enabling us to negotiate with large companies from a position of strength. I have no hesitation in recommending Baxter IP Patent Attorneys.

Bruce Gillespie, MD, Homelift Pty Ltd

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.

Natasha Buttigieg

I was very impressed with my dealings with Baxter IP Patent Attorneys. From the first phone conversation I felt assured that Baxter understood where my technology developments were at and they clearly outlined what the next steps would be. I found the company very personable and was highly impressed with their affinity to grasp the intent of my venture and match it with the most suitable licensing models. A lot of practical “do and don’ts” were covered along with tried and tested models so that my own knowledge and confidence increased in the proposals suggested. A comprehensive document was prepared as agreed, which was a solid basis for the next stage of negotiations. Plus John Baxter was only too willing to provide follow-up and advice drawing upon his expertise gained in licensing around the world. I gained a lot of confidence in my business going forward knowing that I was getting expert advice.

Glenn Titmuss

We are really happy with your services and thank you again. I will highly recommend you in the future.

Card & Vase

Having tried to register my patent I took advantage of Baxter IP’s fee consultation where it immediately became apparent I had filed the wrong patent application, which Baxter IP immediately remedied. I highly recommend that anyone looking for patent protection should similarly contact Baxter IP; I’m happy I did.

Nassir Fakhouri, Dental Floss Dispenser

The service at Baxters is excellent. Friendly and relaxed yet professional and thorough.

Emmy & Frank McNeilly, a container system for providing tactile feedback

Although patenting your invention gives you the sole rights to your design, preventing others from making, using, or selling the invention, the process is often very lengthy and requires attention to even the minute details in order to get rid of any ‘loop-holes’. However Baxter IP made this process much, much easier providing a safe and friendly working environment. Nicholas and John ensured that patent fit every specification of the invention and thought through every little detail. The Baxter IP team provided a flexible and safe working environment where you are their first priority and unlike other firms, work very closely with their client. The service is efficient and reliable and they search through masses of international and national patents to make sure your invention cannot and will not be copied by others. I give my highest recommendation to Baxter IP for the diligent service ultimately providing me with a secure patent and putting my mind at ease.

Ranjith Obeyesekera PhD, Director of Enginerring Development, K-HART international Pty. Ltd.

I had an idea and called Baxter IP and they put me onto Warren Chandler, I could not have asked for a better introduction to patenting a product. I found Warren to be very helpful, understanding, and precise. He made the information he gave me easy to understand considering how complicated these processes are. I had no idea what to do or how to do it but Warren walked me through every process and made the decisions so easy. We have now filed for a provisional patent and will look forward to taking our idea internationally with the help of Baxter IP.

Val Carniato

Found your staff helpful and efficient. Would recommend you to my friends.

Todd Archer from Archer Innovation

Thanks to Dr Phillip Burns for handling my patent application efficiently. I’m impressed by the entire reliable process, specifically the turn around times. I look forward to continue to work with you.

Javeeth M S

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.

Graham Stephens

I would like to thank Baxter IP for their outstanding work in preparing my patent application. They delivered high quality service and explained the patenting process and what was required in a very easy, simple and thorough manner. I highly recommend Baxter IP to anyone who wants an excellent, professional and quality patent application, Thank you Baxter IP.

Kevin Hiltunen

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.
