Common Questions?

  1. In a nutshell, what does The Patent Co do?

    We write (known as drafting) patent specifications and then file these with IP Australia or overseas Patent Offices.

  2. Are you Patent Lawyers?

    We are actually registered Patent Attorneys which is a very specialised qualification (combining patent law and engineering) that enables us to draft patent specification and advise in detail on patent law. In fact, a normal lawyer (even a patent lawyer) is prohibited from drafting patent specifications. As patent attorneys all discussions with The Patent Co are covered by Federal confidentially laws.

  3. What else does The Patent Co do?

    We handle a wide range of intellectual property matters including patent, trade marks, designs and confidential information. We also advise on IP driven innovation strategy and assist with research and development, funding and grants.

  4. How much does a Patent Cost?

    The first step of the patent process, typically a provisional patent application, starts from around $3,000 (inc. GST & Gov’t Fees). We offer competitive fixed fees that we believe are the best “value” available. Please get in touch for a complementary discussion in which we will provide you with a quote for your specific invention.
