Spruson & Ferguson Lawyers was the first law firm in Australia to specialise exclusively in IP law and is widely recognised for its expertise in trade marks, patents, designs and copyright law. It has been involved in many ground-breaking Australian IP cases.

We act for a large number of local and international companies across a broad range of industries including information technology, telecommunications, mining, medical devices, pharmaceuticals, biotechnology, and consumer products.

  • advice on IP ownership
