Intellectual Property

Trade mark applications and registrations are a core part of Sladen Legal's Intellectual Property practice. A trade mark is your brand. It tells your customers who you are and gives your business an identity. It can be one of the most valuable marketing tools for a business so it is important it is registered. Before applying for a trade mark it is a good idea to do a trade mark search to ensure there is not another trade mark out there that is similar to yours. 

We offer a range of trade mark search options to assist you in assessing whether your trade mark can be registered in Australia.  The right trade mark search for you will depend on the level of information and advice you require.  Please see the table below for the features of each search before selecting your preferred option.
