Intellectual Property and IT

KCL Law is a progressive firm that keeps on top of today’s innovative and fluid technological environment. Having worked with some of Australia’s most dynamic businesses and entrepreneurs, we understand the risks, strategy and considerations required to build, communicate and successfully exploit intellectual property.

Intellectual property is the heart and core of many businesses, and with the growth of online trading, social media and electronic communications, businesses are now, more than ever, understanding the importance of commercialising and protecting their intellectual property.

Our Intellectual Property and IT team assist clients with creating, protecting, defending, enforcing and commercialising their valuable intellectual property rights. We ensure clients have effective safeguards in place to minimise risks and maximise the commercial potential of their intellectual property.

  • trade marks;
  • copyright;
