    I am looking for an experienced, but reasonably priced intellectual property lawyer to predominantly handle trademark registrations for my clients.

    There is also the scope for other intellectual property work.

    I am an accountant and business adviser and we are pushing a lot of our business clients to take action to protect their intellectual property.

    I have attached a schedule of fees we have been given – however the firm admitted they do not specialise in the area.

    I would rather pay for someone with specialist expertise in this area rather than a specialist.

    Anybody replying should also put the case forward for why we need to pay them to do a trademark registration rather than do it ourselves – I believe other Flying Solo users would get some value from that argument!

    Thanks in advance
    Kris

    Hi Kris

    Petrina from Consulting WorX alerted me to your post. I believe that my firm fits your profile, and would be happy if you give us a call or send me a PM to discuss.

    As far as your question about self-registration of trade marks, we looked at that question in a blog post on our web site a few months ago. In short, a trade mark application should not be seen as just an “administrative” process like applying for a business name. There are countless decisions that affect the validity and the extent of your proprietary rights, and in our view a professional is needed.

    If you’re interested in the long answer, it’s here:

    Hi Kris,
    I can’t give you a specific recommendation but there is a directory of all members of the Institute of Patent & Trademark of Aust at http://www.ipta.com.au/. You can look their members up by capital city.

    There is also a bunch of info on the topic stored there.

    Hope it is useful.

    Regs,

    John W

    I was going to recommend Yvette from Magnum IP but I see it has already been done.

    Yvette is just the best.
