Sometimes, your business needs to know where it stands on a legal matter.
Whether it’s knowing if you can use a particular brand or technology, how to protect that brand or technology, how to structure your business to take your new technology and innovation forward, or knowing whether your business’s next marketing campaign complies with data privacy regulations and the Spam Act.
We can help you navigate the increasingly complex legal landscape that your business operates in.
We can advise on all areas of corporate and commercial law relating to technology and branding. This includes actual legal advice where we will seek to understand your problem and provide you with a legal analysis. Usually we will also suggest how, in a practical sense, you can resolve the issue with certainty.
In the context of a dispute, this may mean seeking settlement with the other side, so you can get on with life and business.
In the context of a new business relationship, this will usually involve entering into a legally binding agreement that is appropriate to the risk and value of the arrangement.
More information on the particular areas of legal expertise can be found below as well as brief summaries of the main areas of intellectual property that may be relevant to your business.

"Marshall IP Group has been assisting SAI Global with its trade mark, IT and other intellectual property agreements for over 4 years now. They have demonstrated a good understanding of our businesses and services and this commercial understanding is applied to the legal advice and assistance they have provided. They have shown expertise beyond their size and (regional) location and an ability to stand their ground against their City counterparts: you get the quality of a city law firm partner but you are not charged the big city law firm rates. They are pro-active, commercially sensible and this has given me, as a busy in-house Corporate Counsel and Company Secretary, peace of mind in relation to SAI Global’s national and international IP Portfolio and other legal needs.

"Marshall Legal helped us out with a particularly nasty allegation of IP rights infringement. They quickly got to the nub of the problem and navigated the complex regime of trade marks and copyright law to diffuse the situation. Not only were the allegations withdrawn but we got our costs back. I would recommend Marshall Legal; not only did they get us a great result, they put our minds at ease throughout the proceeding."Read More >
