Patent & Trade Mark


Tertiary institutions in Australia and New Zealand are under enormous pressure to undertake, manage and commercialise research and product development in a cost effective way. We have worked in the University sector for many years and have a deep understanding of the demands on Universities to both commercialise their ideas and protect the intellectual property of the institution.  We also understand that for many people working in the sector, issues around protecting IP can be contentious or difficult to address whilst balancing other demands.
Our attorneys have provided specialist advice to a range of Universities in relation to intellectual property management.  We work closely with our University clients to deliver advice that is practical, timely and tailored to the individual needs of each institution.
FB Rice can service a broad range of technology areas and we can assist technology transfer offices with advice on invention capture, education, commercialisation, patenting, trade marks and all areas of intellectual property protection.
