About Actuate IPIntellectual property—patents, trade marks, designs, copyright and confidential information—forms the building blocks of all successful businesses. IP is a complex area, but with the right strategies in place, it can be an important tool for business positioning, providing value and assisting your business to achieve a competitive advantage.
Actuate IP is a specialist intellectual property legal and attorney practice based in Melbourne, Australia. Our team of established patent attorney, trade mark attorney and intellectual property lawyers possess a broad range of experience from their work at specialist intellectual property and top-tier law firms. We have come together to provide high quality expertise and provide IP advisory services done differently.
Award-winning firmOur firm was recently awarded the Corporate International Global Award for Australian Boutique IP Firm of the Year. We are ranked and recognised in the field of Trade Marks in the Managing IP 2012 survey for Australia.
Our approach - why we strive to be differentThe two key needs of our clients are:
- that they are being provided precise advisory services to match their business needs; and
- that the IP advisory services for which they engage us are delivered on budget.
We provide an overall strategic approach to IP management and protection. We do this by taking the time to understand your business. This understanding then ensures we implement an IP strategy that matches your commercial goals. This approach is important, as there is little value in implementing an IP strategy which does not ultimately benefit your bottom line.
We strive to provide you with clear and timely advice as well as regular updates at every stage of your matter. By understanding your business, we ensure our advice and recommendations are commercially relevant to you.
At our firm, gone are the days of charging clients by the hour or in 6 minute increments. You won't get charged for every time your lawyer or patent attorney takes your call, or for every 6 minute block they spend thinking about your matters. Instead you can call us and meet with us - we won't charge you for it. We wil treat every IP project for you differently and agree with you at the outset a fixed price for the scope of work to be undertaken. What does this mean for you? It means complete price certainty. There will be no budget blow outs on your legal spend and there will be no surprise invoices. You will only ever receive an invoice for services that you first authorised.
Implementing your IP strategy in stages
By implementing your IP strategy in stages and keeping you up to date on progress, we make it easy for you plan and to make decisions that will assist your business. There should never be a time where you are unsure what stage your matter has reached.
