Why choose Freehills Patent Attorneys?

When you partner with Freehills Patent Attorneys, you gain access to Australia’s most experienced patent attorneys, and some of the finest legal minds in your industry.

Boutique - style patent services…

We provide expert advice on the creation, management, enforcement and commercialisation of your intellectual property rights, including patents and design. 

…with certainty of large commercial firm resources

We are the only Australian patent attorney firm that is backed by the expertise, services and infrastructure of a large full-service corporate law firm. Thanks to our exclusive strategic relationship with Herbert Smith Freehills, we can give you access to Australia’s best IP litigators and commercial practitioners and to all other related areas of commercial law including competition and anti-trust, tax, mergers and acquisitions, venture capital and equity capital markets. 

More than a Patent Attorney

Whether we start working with you at inception of your business or at a much later stage, we will invest our time into getting to know your business and how it works.  We like this approach because this is the only way we know how to become a strategic advisor to your business.

Importantly, we believe that the patent attorney relationship should involve more than a mere following of client instruction. Moreover, our vision is to become an integral part of our client’s business, as in this relationship we are better placed to identify the risks and opportunities that are otherwise unclear in a relationship based solely on patent attorney response to client instruction. 

Depth of expertise

Our patent attorneys have years of expertise, significant qualifications and proven record of success in your industry. They understand your technology, whether it’s a pharmaceutical compound or a new manufacturing process, so they can quickly identify and mitigate risk, and help you realise the full potential of an idea.
