WHAT

WE DON'T DO

DETAILED SEARCHING

 

We do not undertake detailed searching work such as Freedom to Operate or Novelty.  We will provide basic searches such as obtaining status reports details for specific patents.

 

CONTENTIOUS WORK

 

We do not undertake litigation or opposition work. We believe this work should be conducted by litigation lawyers who are appropriately experienced in this area. We will file a notice of opposition if required.

OPINION WORK

 

We do not undertake opinion work such as infringement opinions.  We believe this work should be performed by litigation lawyers who will be further involved should the matter proceed. 

OUR 

VISION

REAL-TIME IP recognized that the majority of Australian IP transactions instructed by a foreign professional were simple.  In these cases, the value-add by local attorneys is largely administrative in nature.  Consequently, our vision was to create services based on a bespoke IP software platform enabling experienced instructing IP professionals to actively participate in acquiring and maintaining IP rights and for that participation to be in real-time.

 

We wanted to provide you, as an instructing IP practitioner, with:

 

  • Greater control and interactivity;

  • Resolution of tasks in real-time thereby providing certainty and reducing stress;

  • All tasks being completed from your desktop via user-friendly forms; and

  • Fixed cost pricing up to 70% cheaper than traditional attorney firms. 

 

The realization of our vision acknowledges questions outside routine practice will arise from time to time.  Our team includes experienced attorneys all with over 20 years in practice and a wider referral base of accomplished colleagues. Any required input is available for all circumstances.
