We have decades of experience working in intellectual property in Australia and overseas, in large and small practices and in-house with publishers, media companies and FMCG companies. We’ve taken the grounding and technical excellence that we picked up in top tier law firms, added crisp communication and packaged it all up with a flexible fee structure.
The result: high-quality, commercially astute advice and robust legal representation.
We don’t pretend to be a full-service law firm. We are fully focussed on doing what we do really well. We’re not trying to be the biggest. Like our clients, we’re focussed on being the best.

We have spent years working in publishing, film and digital media companies and with large retailers, fashion brands, hospitality venues, food and wine producers and brewers. We understand the importance of context and industry experience.
We know where our strengths lie: we’re IP experts. Where aspects of your project are outside our core expertise or require the input of foreign IP experts, we work with our established network of experts in other areas and jurisdictions to bring together the best team for the job.
There’s the big win, which we love as competitive folk who take what we do very seriously. The long term win, where the problem is solved and the risk is neutralised. The collective win, where the deal is done, the negotiation successfully concluded. And the team win, where everyone pulls together to deliver an excellent collective result.
