The Registration Process

Navigating through the legal jargon of trademark registrations in Australia

for self-registration can become difficult.

With us, the process is as easy as A, B, C, D.

Our Australian-Registered Trademark Attorneys abide by the following steps:

Step A:
Decide the specifics of the trademark.

Choose a distinctive trademark, its type, category among the 45 trademark classes, and desired ownership.

Step B:
File your application.

We thoroughly recheck the information and submit your application for a trademark to IP Australia.

Step C:
Update you at each stage.

The application goes through examination, depending on the nature of your application, the time period it will take to be examined will vary. We keep you informed throughout.  

Step D:
Sort objections and give you the good news.

If there is an objection to wording, etc., we gauge your options and fix the hiccup to obtain the trademark registration certificate.  If there are other issues, we will let you know and discuss our options together.

The trademark registration process can take 4-6 months to near completion in normal conditions depending on the work backlog of IP Australia,

it can take up to 7 months or more.

We keep you in the loop with regular update emails.

A trademark is important for business and therefore essential to get right. Self-registration without sufficient Australian trademark knowledge can mean you:

  • Register a trademark that exists.

  • Choose the wrong class or category of trademarks or offer very general descriptions.

  • Apply for a trademark that is not distinctive enough.

Filing for the wrong trademark with insufficient information is a waste of time, money, and resources.
