Expert IP Advice

Australian and International Searches

We provide services for arranging patent searches and trademark searches. The focus of a search will depend on the specific reason for conducting the search, and requires attention to the surrounding facts. For example, a novelty search is vastly different to a freedom-to-operate search.

While “low cost” search services are offered on the Internet, many place the onus on the requester to specify the search parameters, and does not include any advice on relevance of results. It is often seen that client managed searches, even when conducted as an international type search by IP Australia, does not address the underlying concerns for conducting the search. A misdirected search is an entire waste of money.

We provide advice on realistic expectations of search results, and understanding the limitations. In some cases, search costs may not even be justified. When considering a search, we look at the situation and provide advice for you to make an informed decision before proceeding.

Typically, search costs would be in the range of $800 to $2,000. Patentable can provide capped-fee quotes for undertaking searches, and welcomes your call for a free consultation.
