Our Intellectual Property Expertise
Organisations spend time and money creating valuable intellectual property (IP). How do you then properly use that IP and protect it?
The Maddocks IP team comprises of partners and lawyers with extensive specialist advisory and dispute capabilities.
Their experience ranges from patent advice and commercialisation to copyright and design advice and transactions. We also advise on trademark registration, portfolio management and business name and domain name registration, as well as marketing and advertising advice.
Should an IP dispute arise, we provide dispute resolution and litigation services. We have successfully represented clients on patent infringement and invalidity, passing off and breaches of Australian Consumer Law, and the infringement of trademarks, copyright and design rights.
Our patent litigation team has represented clients in significant disputes in the Federal Court, Full Court and High Court of Australia, spanning a range of technologies from pharmaceuticals and telecommunications.
We have recently acted in particular cases relating to blockbuster drug patents, including extended release formulations, second medical use patents and dosage regimens.
