Clifford Gouldson Lawyers is very pleased to advise that Nicola Hayden is able to provide trade mark services from our Toowoomba office for clients locally and remotely across Australia.
After working with the firm on trade mark matters, Nicola’s interest was peaked. She completed the necessary study requirements and on application supported by Managing Director Ben Gouldson was registered as a Trade Marks Attorney in early 2021.
This unique qualification, separate from other legal qualifications, is required to give clients the specialised advice necessary in this complex area of law and procedure.
Managing Director Ben Gouldson said, “Intellectual property services have been provided by CGLaw in Toowoomba for more than ten years and we remain the only dedicated intellectual property team in the region.”
“Adding the unique qualifications of a Trade Marks Attorney is a further demonstration of our commitment to, and expertise in, this critical area of law,” he said.
“In modern business, protecting your intellectual property, including your trade marks, is as critical as protecting your physical or digital infrastructure.”
“Nicola has worked for our firm for some time and will be familiar to our existing intellectual property clients so it was a pleasure to support her in achieving this qualification.”
“Being willing to take on the extra work and responsibility of this qualification and the work it entails, is just one more demonstration of the exceptional commitment and service to our clients that Nicola provides.”
Trade Marks Attorney Nicola Hayden said, “It’s exciting to be developing my expertise in this area and be able to offer trade mark services personally from our firm here in Toowoomba to clients locally and further abroad.”
“I believe I am now one of only two trade mark attorneys located in the Toowoomba region,” she said.
“The key services a Toowoomba based Trade Mark Attorney can offer local businesses include:
- Advising as to the importance of trade mark registration and the likelihood of trade mark registrability, including brand names, logos and other distinctive trade get up;
- Drafting and filing trade mark applications with IP Australia, and internationally; and
- Advising and assisting with IP Australia’s trade mark registration and dispute processes.
“This is in addition to the other intellectual property services and wider legal services that CGLaw provides.”
