IP litigation and dispute resolution

IP litigation and related disputes can be an unwanted distraction for any business, whether enforcing its right as the IP owner or defending infringement claims.

We work with our clients to assess the risks and rewards of pursuing all actions at the outset, weighing up the commercial benefits, the chance of success and the financial impact of any dispute.

We have expertise across all areas of IP litigation, including enforcing and defending copyright, design, patent and trade mark infringements and related claims under the Competition and Consumer Act 2010 (Cth). We also work with our litigation lawyers who have IP disputes experience to complement our core IP team.
