PatentsHave you protected your innovative product or process? In addition to deterring competitors, a patent (or patent pending) can be an effective marketing tool, attract investors, and make your business eligible for Government grants.
Trade MarksAbout to launch a commercially valuable branded product or service? Most businesses recognise the importance of branding yet often fail to (i) consider the trade mark rights of others and (ii) protecting their brand.
DesignsNeed low-cost protection for your product? Registering the design of your product can provide powerful protection against copying, especially in cases where copyright protection is unavailable.
More ServicesRegardless of whether your business operates in the physical marketplace or online, we provide a wide range of commercially focused services to meet all your intellectual property needs.

We engaged Cullens to petition the Australian trade mark office for an abandonment of a mark held by a Fortune 500 company in the USA.
Unless Cullens were successful in their petition, Ballard would be shut out of the Australian market with one of our best brands, Columbia Bicycles.
Our attorney was successful with our petition and the job was performed quickly and thoroughly. Our attorney kept us continuously updated as the case proceeded.
Thanks to Cullens fine work, Ballard is now able to sell Columbia Bicycles to Australian consumers. Thanks Cullens!

Hydrus Technology engaged the services of Cullens to assist Hydrus in protecting its Intellectual Property for a very complex Electro-Chemical process.
Hydrus was impressed by the way in which the appointed Cullens’ representative was able to very quickly and easily understand the technology and the requirements of the Company. More importantly, through Cullens’ in depth understanding and broad knowledge of the science and the Patent market, they were able to provide considerable value towards the Patent process, allowing us to protect our rights to the greatest extent possible.
We highly recommend Cullens for their proactive approach, detailed knowledge, the speed with which they address matters together with their very reasonable and transparent pricing model and fees.
David Cam, Chief Executive of Hydrus Technology
