International and Independent

Shelston IP acts for many of the world’s largest, fastest-growing and most successful companies and brands. A very large proportion of our clients are global companies or Australian companies doing business overseas. This requires us to work on a daily basis with attorneys around the world.


We are firmly of the view that our independence has aided our success – and the successful outcomes we achieve for our clients.

As we are not formally aligned with any network, and do not operate as a franchise, we can be objective about which overseas firms we engage on behalf of our clients.

We are instructed by hundreds of IP firms worldwide. In turn, we engage on behalf of our clients only those firms we consider to be best of breed – those that have the expertise and know-how required by our clients, and that share our firm’s commitment to quality, client service and value for money.
