The information and material on this website are intended only to provide a general overview on matters of interest. Its contents are not a complete statement of the law on any subject. Professional advice should be sought before any course of action is pursued.
While we endeavour to ensure the accuracy and completeness of the information contained on this website, that information may contain errors and omissions and is liable to change.

No lawyer/attorney-client relationship
Our operation of this website is not intended to create, and will not create, a lawyer/attorney-client relationship with you. While you are very welcome to contact us by telephone, email, facsimile, online enquiry or any other means, merely contacting us or communicating with us does not create a lawyer/attorney-client relationship until an agreement has been reached between you and H & H IP to handle a particular matter. The formation of such a relationship requires prior satisfaction of multiple factors including checking and resolving any conflicts of interest and mutual agreement on the terms of the engagement.
This website contains intellectual property including copyright, trade marks and confidential information, together with any goodwill subsisting in those rights owned by H & H IP or third parties. Unless permitted by law, you must not copy, reproduce, transmit, adapt, store, display or otherwise distribute any of that intellectual property in whole or in part without our or the relevant third party’s prior written consent.
Third Party Website
This website contains links to websites not maintained, controlled or associated with us. The links do not and should not be taken as implying our endorsement or approval of the content of those websites or the activities of the organisations and businesses responsible for those websites. We are not responsible for the operation, security levels, content or any other aspect of those third party websites.
Free Trade Mark Head-up Search
By offering and conducting the Free Trade Mark Head-up Search, we take all reasonable steps to ensure the completeness and accuracy of the search but searches are inherently subjective and dependent upon uncertain contingencies. As a result, we cannot guarantee the search result is complete and accurate. We exclude, to the maximum extent permitted by law, all liability which may arise as a result of or in connection with the search. The search result does not guarantee that your trade mark can be registered nor will it be rejected. A trade mark is examined against a number of factors including whether the mark is descriptive of the goods/services. If an objection raised during an examination, this may or may not be overcome subject to each applicant’s situation.
In carrying out this complimentary search we access data kept by the Australian Trade Marks Office, Australian Securities and Investments Commission and a WhoIs Domain Lookup Registry for the identical mark only, and therefore are dependent upon the accuracy of the records available to us. Due to the timing of updates to the official records kept by these organisations, there is a possibility that the same or similar mark has been recorded in a couple of weeks before the date of conducting the search. A conflicting trade mark application may also be filed in Australia subsequent to the date of the search with claiming priority in accordance with the Paris Convention.
The search request is strictly limited to once per person or business. We may cease offering this service at any time for any or no reason without notice.
