What is a Trade Mark Lawyer?A trade mark lawyer is a lawyer who specialises in trade mark enforcement. While trade mark attorneys assist in registering and prosecuting trade marks with IP Australia, a trade mark lawyer will be involved in trade mark infringement litigation or defending a trade mark infringement claim. In other words, they are involved more in litigation than administration.
They differ from trade mark attorneys as they do not need to undertake accredited courses required for registration as a trade mark attorney. However, as lawyers, they need to have a recognised law degree and be admitted to practice at both state and federal levels.
A person can be both a trade mark lawyer and trade mark attorney if they are admitted to practise law and have undertaken the accredited courses required to be registered as a trade mark attorney in Australia.
If you believe your trade mark is being infringed or you are facing potential trade mark infringement litigation, it is absolutely essential that you seek advice from a trade mark lawyer.
