Searches and Investigations

Maxwells will help you through the processes required to identify, clear, register, investigate, protect, validate, enforce, identify, watch and manage your intellectual property assets and rights; here in Australia and internationally.

Through various searches we can identify current “state of the art” and prior registrations, get relevant information e.g. the owner, applicant, inventor, establish any liability or infringements pending, and much more.

These searches and watches should commence in the early stages of research and development and carrying on throughout the life cycle of your patent, trade mark, design or copyright works.

Maxwells can also help you identify potential partners and competitors, providing you with advice, guidance and relevant agreements to ensure financial security and protect you against infringements, oppositions and exploitation.

At Maxwells our watch services include:
  • Infringement activity;
  • Technology activity.
