Expertise

SWS Lawyers has a dedicated disputes team comprised of lawyers with extensive experience in the protection and defence of intellectual property rights. We pride ourselves on our ability to help clients fully assess the commercial risks and rewards of pursuing a broad range of resolution actions, weighing the chance of success against the potential overall financial impact of their dispute. 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, software, mining, manufacturing, tourism and marketing. We understand that underlying IP can often represent a large component of a company’s value, and as such, the need to protect or defend key IP assets against infringement or misappropriation by others can be absolutely critical to survival and prosperity.

If difficulties arise, we are able to draw on a depth of experience in all areas of IP litigation, including enforcing and defending copyright, design, patent and trade mark infringements, passing off and related brand protection disputes and resolution processes, as well as managing highly complex patent litigation. This experience includes ‘whole of enterprise’ cases for private manufacturing clients. In circumstances where highly specialised input is required, our team offers a fully integrated solution by working with a select group of specialist IP barristers and trade mark and patent attorneys.

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.
