What is a trade mark attorney?
In Australia, a trade mark attorney is a professional person who is registered under federal legislation to help clients take advantage of and protect their trade marks and associated intellectual property rights. Services may include registering the trade marks in Australia or overseas. Trade marks attorneys hold tertiary qualifications and are trained in laws relating to trade marks, and have some understanding of the law relating to intellectual property.
