Managing a large portfolio of trade marks internationally requires a strategic approach that maximises protection while containing costs.

Our trade mark and branding experts work with clients to cost-effectively manage the ever-present challenge of counterfeits, including by deploying extended protection for non-traditional marks such as colours or shapes.

We also support clients with complex enforcement actions against competitors across the spectrum, whether it is routine enforcement of trade marks against rogue retailers or taking a complex question of trade mark law to the High Court of Australia.

We act for many high profile clients across a broad range of IP dispute and trade mark work including Caterpillar, the Richemont Group (Cartier, Dunhill, Mont Blanc, IWC etc.), Hermès, Lacoste SA, Tommy Hilfiger, Nike, Hugo Boss, Ferrari, Blackberry, Christian Louboutin, LVMH Fragrance Group (Christian Dior Parfums, Guerlain etc.), Moët Hennessy Champagne Services, Nuheara, Vans, the Kering Group (Gucci, Bottega Veneta etc.), Christian Dior Couture and Versace.
