Give your brand the protection it deserves

Business name registration in Australia doesn't mean that you own the name or are legally allowed to use it. Trade mark registration gives you legal rights to use your brand and the confidence to invest in the growth of your business.

Who I help

I love working with new businesses, start-ups, creatives and growing businesses. As a registered Trade Marks Attorney in Australia and New Zealand, I help businesses get protected both here and overseas.

01.

You are starting a business

The ideal time to start the trade marking process is before you invest in branding and build your website. If there is a problem with your chosen name then it's better to find out early.

02.

It's time to level up

If business is going well and growing then now might be the right time to level up and get the legal side of your business sorted. I work with lots of business who are at this stage of their business journey.

03.

Your business is growing

I also work with businesses that are expanding their product and service lines and who are looking for wider protection of their brand, either through multiple trade marks or overseas registration.

How it works...

It takes over 7 months to get a trade mark registered in Australia so it is good to start the process as early as you can.

 

We like to start the process with a telephone chat where we look at your business and work out the best strategy for protecting your brand. I then send you a quote for the services we discussed. If you are happy to move ahead then you make the first payment (we usually offer a payment plan) and I prepare your application and do the searches and checks to identify if there are any issues that could come up in the process. If I identify issues then we work out how we will address them, before your application is lodged. I then lodge your application and manage the process, keeping you updated along the way.

We’ve now registered three trademarks with Lisa, and each time we’ve been so happy with the results.

Will absolutely be calling her again when we have more trademarking needs!

This is the second time I’ve worked with Lisa on my trademarks and I can wholeheartedly recommend her services. I’ve always thought that you can best judge customer service when things don’t go to plan, and Lisa truly stepped up when my trademark was challenged by a big player. Lisa is a consummate professional and expert negotiator and this shone through during the process. She had my back and my best interests at heart with her advice and recommendations to me on how to proceed and we ended up with a Win:Win result (no pun intended!). She is a great communicator and I have no hesitation in recommending Lisa.

Not only does she know her stuff inside and out, but she's also super patient and makes sure you understand everything. For me I knew nothing! Lisa really goes the extra mile to make the whole process smooth and understandable. I've been blown away by how supportive and helpful she's been. Highly recommend her if you want someone who's not just all about business but actually cares and delivers results!

Thank you again. Recommending you from the roof tops.

Thank you Lisa, the queen of Trade Marks advice and registration.

 
 
 

Penny Adams - Seeasons of Life Counselling

I reached out to Lisa when I wanted to get a trademark for my counselling business. I looked into doing it myself but I found all the different classes confusing and a bit overwhelming. Lisa came highly recommended and I easily booked in an initial call with her to discuss. I am so glad I did as what I originally wanted to do wasn't possible due to the common name so I ended up trademarking my logo. Lisa communicated every step of the way and I valued her recommendations and felt secure in her experience. I highly recommend Lisa if you are wanting a trademark for your precious business. Thanks Lisa

You explained everything so clearly and didn't make me feel silly to ask too many questions! You walked us through the entire process and kept us in the loop with everything. 

I would highly recommend your service. You were wonderful to deal with, kept us up to date with the process and were always available to answer any questions we had. You have incredible expertise that can be easily translated to the lay person!

Renee Tilley - Paudha Healing

I was worried about the costs involved but having the initial phone call with you and you setting all the costs out up front really helped to reassure me.

The process was made so easy by having the online forms to complete. No need to physically go into an office or have lengthy phone calls.

Just wanted to thank you again for making the process so simple and stress free!

The biggest mistakes made by businesses lodging their own trade mark applications


Jump into any business Facebook group and you’ll find heaps of people who’ll tell you that it’s easy to do your own trade mark application. What they don’t tell you is that it’s also easy to muck it up (and they don’t tell you that because they don’t know the difference between an effective trade mark and a useless one).

Below is a list of the biggest mistakes I see from people who do their own trade mark applications. I hope this helps you to avoid making these mistakes too!

What to do before you apply for a trade mark


Lodging a trade mark application with IP Australia is a straight forward process and many people tackle this task themselves. Trade mark law is not straight forward, however, so unfortunately lots of people end up with registered trade marks that provide substandard protection or no protection at all. Many people run into problems that could have been avoided and their trade marks don’t get registered.

So, before you lodge your trade mark application there are a few questions you should answer:
