Our Services


How We can help you

We offer a range of services to help innovative clients grow their businesses, manage R&D contracting, negotiate complex commercial transactions and protect and commercialise their intellectual property. We understand each business is unique and provide flexible arrangements to meet your business needs. 

Research & Development

We draft, review and negotiate agreements across the full spectrum of R&D activities, from preliminary discussions, funding and collaboration, to consortium and alliance agreements, clinical trial and product development.

Examples of the agreements we work with include funding and grant agreements, secondary funding agreements, multi-institutional agreements, collaboration agreements, data and material transfer agreements, non-disclosure agreements, consulting services agreements, research service and development agreements, and clinical trial agreements and indemnities.

We also offer training and template development to help legal and non legal staff complete and manage contracts effectively.

Trade Marks & Consumer Law

A trade mark is a sign or insignia used to distinguish your goods and services from that of other traders. A trade mark can be a word, phrase, logo, letter, number, symbol, sound, smell, shape, logo, picture, aspect of packaging or any combination of these,

As qualified trade mark attorneys, we can help you protect your brand by undertaking Australian trade mark searches, filing for trade mark registration and conducting IP audits to identify and secure your intellectual property.

We also provide advice on consumer, marketing and privacy laws, misleading and deceptive conduct, trade promotion terms and direct marketing.

Commercial & Business Law

We provide advice and support with the day-to-day operations of an innovation business - from establishing a startup, to hiring staff, licensing software, developing a website or leasing ICT equipment (e.g., photocopiers). We also advise on corporate governance, privacy law, risk and compliance.

Having extensive in-house expertise, we understand the challenges of managing legal resourcing with tight budgets and can provide a range of solutions - including ad-hoc, project based, or retainer or secondment support.

Whether supporting a legal team during peak periods or providing ad-hoc advice to a growing business – we'll support your legal operations, so you can focus on your business.

Intellectual Property Commercialisation Advice

Intellectual Property (IP) is a key asset of an innovation business and an important component to any effective commercialisation strategy.

We help you protect and monetise your IP assets by providing IP protection and commercialisation advice, negotiation, drafting and review of key commercialisation documents, including term sheets, option agreements, licences, inter-institutional agreements, IP assignments and commercialisation agreements.

We also assist clients to successfully establish university and medical research institute related spin outs and start ups including preparation of transaction documents.
