Who We Are

Michael Buck IP is an independent, Queensland owned and operated patent and trade mark attorney firm, based in Brisbane and Sydney’s North Shore, Australia.

We help creative people and businesses.  Our clients range from local companies and individual inventors to start ups, international corporations, universities and research organizations.

When you engage us you can be sure of four facts that should be essential to your selection process:

1. You’re in safe hands. Our experience in intellectual property goes back to 1994.  We’ve prepared and prosecuted hundreds of patent, trade mark and design applications in Australia and throughout the world.

2. You’ll clearly understand the process and the costs.  It’s in both our interests that we’re on the same page. We take pains to ensure that our clients understand the processes that are involved in IP protection. We provide written documentation at the outset clearly explaining the steps and costs for seeking  patent, trademark and design registration.

3. You’ll receive a personalized responsive service.  We strive to return calls quickly. We take pleasure in helping our clients and learning about them so that we can add value where it’s most needed.

4. You’ll be dealing with an independent firm.  You might be surprised to learn that a number of firms in Australia, including Brisbane, are all wholly owned by publicly listed companies.  When you deal with us you’re dealing with a truly independent firm that is wholly owned by people that work in the firm.

Perhaps you need expert help to protect an invention or a trade mark. It could be that you have concerns in relation to someone else’s intellectual property rights. Take advantage of our knowledge and experience. Call on us to ensure that your intellectual property position is as strong as it could possibly be.

Apart from helping our local clients, we also regularly assist attorneys and business people from the USA, China, Europe, Japan and many other countries to obtain patents, trade marks and design registrations in Australia and New Zealand.  If you’re from overseas and need assistance in Australia or New Zealand then contact us for assistance.


We regularly prepare patent applications for highly technical inventions.  To view examples of some of our high tech work click here.
