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:

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.
