The Intellectual Property & Trade Mark Law Specialists.

Smart, affordable IP advice for every type of business.

New Brands, Product or Ideas

Get cleared and ready to trade, locally and abroad. We perform brand clearance searches, and advise on and register your trade marks, copyright, patents, designs and domain names.

IP Disputes & Resolution 

Is someone using your brand, idea or work without permission? We provide advice on and manage dispute resolution, litigation and settlement processes.

Contracts, Policies and Terms

We develop and review the fine print that keeps you protected. Contracts, agreements, website terms & conditions, privacy policies, marketing compliance and more.

As a business owner, Intellectual Property (IP) is one of your most valuable assets. But the law around IP can be complex - and getting it wrong can be costly. 

If you plan on commercialising a brand, product or idea, it's vital to check you're not infringing anyone else's intellectual property rights. Loft Legal can ensure you're ready to trade with a range of Brand Clearance Searches. We'll then help you Register your Trade Marks, Designs and Innovations - both in your home country and overseas - and support you with strategy for commercialising your brand, products and ideas.

We can also help you to work with other people that contribute to your intellectual property, or that want to use it, through Contracts and Agreements. If anyone is using your ideas without your consent, we can  Manage the Dispute and Resolution process. 

We provide a free 30-minute initial consultation to talk through your situation, and how we could support your business goals.
