Intellectual Property

The Russell Kennedy team helps our clients to navigate complex projects, transactions and disputes involving intellectual property, brand protection and other commercially valuable information.


We have significant IP experience in fields including life sciences, education, agricultural technology, medical research, engineering, information technology, creative arts, media and entertainment and consumer goods. Our team works with an international network of patent and trade mark attorneys to help clients get the most out of their ideas and innovations.

At Russell Kennedy, we help our clients with all legal aspects of intellectual property, including IP advice and protection, IP transactions and IP disputes. Our team regularly advises on brand protection, patents, trade marks, copyright, corporate structuring, joint ventures, licensing, development agreements and collaborative research and development arrangements.
Intellectual property law is complex and continually evolving which can create complicated legal and technological consequences for clients. We understand that organisations can be exposed to intellectual property issues via outsourcing or using third-party technology, or while seeking to commercialise new products and services.
