There are many parts of a business idea that needs protection – even the words, logos, phrases, colours and other unique identifiers that are used to identify a business’s products can all be protected as trade marks.

Whilst it’s not mandatory to register trade marks, it greatly simplifies your ability to take action against anyone copying your marque. Here at Franke Hyland, we prepare and file trade marks in Australia and New Zealand, as well as filing and managing international applications.

Your trade mark management forms just part of your intellectual property strategy from Franke Hyland – allowing you to achieve the most useful protection within the constraints of your budget.

Other services we provide include searching of trade mark databases and other publications to determine and advise on the registrability of new trade marks; as well as advising you on whether your new branding might infringe other people’s trade mark rights.
