IP Disputes and Litigation

We strategically handle disputes and litigation in the areas of trade mark, copyright and design law, as well as associated Australian Consumer Law (ACL) and passing off claims.

Our approach is to navigate our clients to a commercial and cost effective resolution with minimal stress, carefully using settlement negotiation and alternative dispute resolution (ADR) methods.  Going to court to resolve a dispute is always a last resort at Studio Legal.

To compliment our trade mark protection services, we also handle all trade mark dispute matters before IP Australia, including oppositions and non-use applications.

We can assist with the following matters:

. Advising on claims relating to intellectual property infringement (trade mark, copyright and design), breaches of the ACL (misleading and deceptive conduct and false representations), passing off and breach of confidence;

. Preparing letters of demand or responses to letters of demand relating to ACL (misleading and deceptive conduct and false representations), passing off and breach of confidence;

. Handling IP dispute settlement negotiations and use of alternative dispute resolution processes;

. Providing advice, preparing evidence and attending hearings at IP Australia for trade mark dispute matters including oppositions and non-use applications.
