ADAMS PLUCK is a firm which is dedicated to helping our clients with the protection, maintenance, commercialisation and enforcement of their intellectual property rights. If your business has a creative idea for a product or process, or has developed something that looks new in appearance, or is planning to market goods or services under a new brand, then we want to hear from you.

We can provide you with the strategic advice needed to obtain registration of patents, designs and trademarks, as well as other forms of intellectual property, in any country of the world. Just as importantly, we can help you to take the right steps at the beginning to make sure that you do not infringe the intellectual property rights of others.

We have gathered a highly talented and experienced team of attorneys, who have extensive experience in their professional fields of science and engineering. Our aim is to become a trusted and integral advisor to your business, to identify risks, and to locate opportunities for you. We operate in both Australia and New Zealand, and have offices in Sydney, Canberra and Newcastle.
