Jones Tulloch is unique in Australia in that we provide a specialist pharmaceutical, agricultural and veterinary consultancy service for our clients in these fields.
We meet with our clients regularly to review research developments and identify protectable IP. We also assist our clients to protect and exploit their IP, as well as deal with the conflicting rights of other entities. Using patent rights as a key business tool is a central tenet of our practice.
We have experience in the filing and registration of trade marks, both in Australia and other countries. Protection can range from your company name and logo, to brand names for each of your proposed products to be marketed. We can advise on trade mark selection and development at the beginning of the design phase, as well as the registrability of an existing mark.
