IP by Margaret® – Intellectual Property Services


I can provide a wide range of IP legal services including:
  • IP-related commercial work such as drafting, reviewing and negotiating consultancy agreements, confidentiality agreements (NDA’s), software agreements, distribution and supply agreements, patent/trade mark/copyright/technology licences and assignments etc
  • IP dispute resolution work eg trade mark and copyright infringement and passing off claims
  • Advising on a wide range of IP-related issues as well as on consumer protection, labelling and contractual issues
I can provide cost effective trade mark attorney services.

I am an experienced trade marks attorney and I can file trade mark applications on your behalf or alternatively help you to file your own application.

With the second option, you keep control of your application, filing and monitoring it yourself, but you can seek my expert advice at any stage of the process.  I charge on a fee-for-service basis, providing advice when you actually need it, avoiding the high fees that can be associated with large IP firms.  Margaret’s services include help with:

  • Choosing a trade mark
  • Deciding if your trade mark is registrable
  • Choosing goods and services to register
  • Taking care of the application process for you
  • How to respond to Trade Mark Office objections
  • How to use a trade mark properly
  • Trade mark oppositions, including conducting the opposition and appearing at hearings of the Trade Marks Office
  • Evidence of use, including drafting declarations
  • Drafting commercial documentation, including assignments of trade marks and settlement agreements
