In Australia, trade mark registration operates on a “first-to-use” basis, which means that the owner of a trade mark is the first entity to use that trade mark in relation to goods and services.
Tailored, Practical, Innovative
Unlike many law firms, we do not pretend to be ‘all things to all people’.
We’re about sensing the needs of our clients, understanding their practical constraints and being transparent in our process. We seek to deliver a positive, human experience that fosters trust and ensures our clients feel confident in our services.
As a team, we live and breathe our values and firm culture. A culture that welcomes inclusion, equality and diversity, embraces new ideas and focuses on the person.
This is the mdp difference.
