SWS Lawyers can provide cost effective and strategic advice to assist our clients in navigating the often-complex environment of commercialising intellectual property rights.
SWS Lawyers has a dedicated ‘innovation team’ comprising lawyers with extensive experience in the commercialisation of intellectual property assets. We can assist clients from the very early stages of ideas and concepts through to the more mature stages of technology development and the commercialisation journey. Our lawyers have acted for a wide variety of clients, ranging from large ASX companies to private clients and across industry sectors including FMCG, telecommunications, manufacturing, tourism and marketing. We understand the challenges faced by entrepreneurs and innovators and we take a long-term view of the commercialisation process.
We offer a specialist intellectual property registration and advisory service. This service is supported by a team of lawyers who work on discrete, but interrelated, aspects of the registration and intellectual property strategy implementation processes, and in circumstances where highly specialised input is required, our team can call upon a select group of specialist IP barristers and trade mark and patent attorneys to source that advice.
The depth of expertise in the SWS Lawyers team means that we can offer sound IP commercialisation advice which considers other relevant commercial factors, while bringing in other skill sets and expertise as and when these are needed. For example, we can help with business structuring, employment arrangements and shareholding arrangements, as well as investment, fundraising and ultimately exit (including business sales, share sales and IPOs).
Their approach is always professional and delivered at a standard comparable to a capital city law firm. It is the clear strategic direction that has always impressed me about the SWS team.
We believe their ability to combine first rate legal expertise, commercial judgement and strong negotiating skills is rare amongst lawyers and provides us with a real competitive advantage in corporate transactions. We use SWS because of their ability, not their post code.
The combination of rare legal expertise, commercial judgement and strong negotiating skills is rare amongst lawyers and provides us with a real competitive advantage in corporate transactions.
