Intellectual Property

Clever people with innovative ideas need intellectual property (IP) protection.

Innovations, branding and information are amongst a business’s most valuable assets to be leveraged.  A business can unlock value and obtain an edge in a competitive, global marketplace by identifying, commercialising, using, protecting and enforcing IP rights.

Lloyd Meridian Legal works closely with clients to identify, develop, commercialise, utilise and protect IP assets and resources.  Our firm provides advice on a broad spectrum of IP law issues including patents, trade marks, copyright, designs and confidential information to individual, start-up companies and multinational corporations.

Branding architecture and commercialisation strategies

Beyond the core IP protection practice areas of patents, trade marks, copyright, designs and confidential information, our firm also advises on branding architecture, IP audits and commercialisation strategies. 

International associates

Inadequate protection and enforcement of IP rights can be a significant barrier for exporters of knowledge-based goods and services to grow and enter into international markets.  Our firm works with overseas associates in Europe, North and South America, Canada, Middle East and the Asia Pacific regions to assist our clients in protecting and enforcing their IP portfolios beyond the shores of Australia.

Transparent Pricing Policies

Our IP matters are generally charged according to a fixed price policy, other than consulting and litigation work.  In accordance with the requirements of good legal practice, a costing agreement is provided to every client detailing the fixed costs and conditions for the scope of work.  As a sign of good faith, your first consultation is complimentary – please feel free to book a complimentary appointment or teleconference by contacting us on:
