Why brandU?

WHY CHOOSE US?

OUR APPROACH

We don’t just file trade marks – anyone can do that. We pride ourselves on our ability to provide sound, commercially focused advice to ensure that our client’s brands are viable, available and protected. We like to think that we are different to other trade mark firms. Yes, we are lawyers but our approach is what sets us apart from our competitors. Our client’s range from sole traders to ASX listed companies but our approach is always the same. Exceptional service at competitive fixed rates.

LOW FEES

In most cases, we can provide fixed fees for our services so you don’t need to fear the dreaded “hidden costs”. Our fixed fees are competitive as compared with other trade mark attorneys and lawyers and almost half the cost of the larger firms. We don’t charge our client’s for preliminary pre-filing trade mark advice, for preliminary advice on examiner’s objections nor for ad hoc discussions. Not all fees can be fixed and in some cases hourly rates will be applied. In these cases, we ensure that we give you an accurate estimate of our total fees upfront so you know exactly where you stand at the get go.

NO ONGOING MAINTENANCE CHARGES

Unlike some of our competitors, we do not charge to manage and maintain your trade mark through the life of the registration. Once your trade mark is registered, we manage it through the 10 year registration period at no additional cost.

FRIENDLY AND RELIABLE SERVICE

Our lawyers are here to help and are happy to discuss your branding and trade mark needs on a no obligations basis. All enquiries are answered on the same day so please contact us if you have a question.
