The Brisbane and Gold Coast teams at IP Gateway Patent and Trade Mark Attorneys know that Intellectual Property consists of various forms of creative human endeavour. These various forms of Intellectual Property include ideas, inventions, industrial designs, product designs, paintings, sculptures, brands, slogans, words and logos. They all have one thing in common: they provide the foundation for building value in your business.
Patents, Trade Marks, Registered Designs and Copyright are the tools that form the Intellectual Property portfolio of your business. Our firm of professional, award winning Intellectual Property attorneys, based in Brisbane and on the Gold Coast work exclusively in these areas. IP Gateway provides customised solutions that can secure the protection of your Intellectual Property and protect your revenue stream: the essence of any business.
Our process begins with good old fashioned service. A same day response, whether you are in Brisbane or the Gold Coast or in between, and that personal touch to show you are a valued customer, not just a number. We get to know you and your business so our experts can deliver the most appropriate intellectual property advice and solutions to you.
We do this by taking the time to listen. It’s an approach that leaves nothing to chance. And it leaves you with a lasting peace of mind, knowing that your IP is being protected and managed by experts that understand your business. It’s a way of doing business that is underpinned by our many years of experience and backed by ongoing accessibility to our services. We’re accessible by email, phone and (due to our convenient, non-CBD location in South East Queensland’s growth corridor and Gold Coast location) in person for our clients. But most importantly, we’re accessible because we want to be. We’re here to help you obtain the best protection and IP strategies for your business.
