Trade Marks

Clayton Utz's dedicated trade marks group provides a comprehensive service to major national and international corporations and government departments.

As your trade mark portfolio expands, you will spend more time in policing deadlines, preparing necessary forms and responding to letters from the Trade Marks Office. We help our clients manage their brand portfolios by offering an efficient, centralised system for providing instructions and receiving advice regarding trade mark matters, using sophisticated trade-marks database software to monitor deadlines and police our clients' entire catalogue.

Our deep experience in trade mark law includes anti-counterfeiting, contract law, litigation and registration procedures, allowing us, to help you through all aspects of trade mark protection, from availability searches through to infringement litigation.

Our professional, co-ordinated, service is tailored to suit your needs, and includes:

  • conducting prompt and thorough trade mark searches;
  • filing and prosecuting trade mark applications, both Australian national applications and international applications under the Madrid Protocol;
  • developing creative strategies to protect valuable new aspects of product packaging and promotion;
  • advising and acting in relation to oppositions and removal actions;
  • developing defensive strategies and conducting infringement actions;
  • preparing trade mark licence and distribution agreements;
  • advising on internal IP protection policies and procedures; and
  • developing branding guidelines and approval processes for all advertising and marketing material, to ensure that your IP is appropriately presented and protected.
