Welcome to Shelston IP
With a rich history dating back 155 years, and specialist teams of patent attorneys, trade mark attorneys and IP lawyers, we are one of the leading intellectual property (IP) firms in Australasia. But don’t take our word for it – here’s what Intellectual Asset Management has to say:
“As technology owners increasingly consolidate their panels of IP service providers, Shelston IP has often been a beneficiary. It has also won a number of beauty contests of late and has seen its stock rise significantly as a result. A key selling point is its big-picture thinking on protection, commercialisation and enforcement issues; it fields a mixed cadre of lawyers and patent attorneys who collectively see things from all angles.” (IAM 1000, 2015)
We have designed this website for you with the aim of providing current news, practical insights and reliable information from around the IP world, including events and developments at Shelston IP.
