A strong history of protecting IP in Australia

Spruson & Ferguson has a long history of providing intellectual property protection in the Australasian region, and we have extensive experience in the protection of IP rights across various countries in the South Pacific. Our attorneys are qualified to act directly before the Patent Offices in Australia & New Zealand and we have strong relationships with the local Registries in the island countries. Our team of professionals keep abreast of the local laws (or lack of) in each of these jurisdictions for the benefit of our local and foreign clients. We have the advantage of being able to coordinate and manage clients’ IP portfolios across Australia, New Zealand and the South Pacific Islands from one central location, ensuring efficient, consistent and quality service delivery.

From our Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Gold Coast offices we offer a full range of IP services including those related to patents, trade marks, designs, IP litigation and commercialisation.
