The Australian innovation patent system has a number of features that make it an attractive protection option. At one end of the spectrum, the system can be applied to achieve rapid and relatively inexpensive patent rights. At the other, innovation patents can be a powerful tool that may be used as part of a broader patent enforcement strategy.

CTA Australia’s core business is the development, manufacture, distribution and installation of tactile guidance systems for the vision-impaired. This is a market which is very competitive in Australia and becoming more competitive in Europe and America. CTA has differentiated itself in the marketplace with its intellectual property, and is an industry leader in the development of products with increased levels of safety and ease of installation.
Our initial search for an IP partner included the criteria of: engineering expertise, size of practice, international standing, ability to offer service across the full spectrum of intellectual property, ease of access and strength in both assertion of our IP rights and IP defence. Davies Collison Cave (DCC) fits this criteria without compromise and has proven over time to be an excellent partner in the development of our IP strategy. DCC has established for us a comprehensive patent, trade mark and design portfolio, which includes several innovation patents that have proven to be invaluable for preventing our competitors from copying our innovations. I have no hesitation in recommending DCC as highly competent and professional intellectual property attorneys and lawyers.Daniel DeDomenico, Owner CTA Australia
