Trade Mark – Headstart Package (Part 1 only)


$690 + GST



If you want to protect your business name, brand names, logo or catchphrases from being used by others, you should register a trade mark. Registration gives you an exclusive right to use the trade mark, allowing you to stop others from using it. Registering a trade mark is a complex and technical process and it’s a good idea to have a lawyer help you through it.

Submitting a trade mark through Part 1 of the Headstart process is a quick way to get feedback from IP Australia about your likelihood for a successful registration.


We’ll submit Part 1 of your TM Headstart Application to IP Australia.

This package includes:

  • Initial consultation to ensure you have all information required to proceed with the application
  • Part 1 – Applying to IP Australia using TM Headstart (1 trade mark in 1 class)

Important notes about the process:

In between Part 1 and Part 2, you will receive the Headstart report from IP Australia. Once we have received the Headstart report, we may require your confirmation to proceed with Part 2. If we require your confirmation and do not receive a response from you within the 48 hours, please note that your application may be discontinued.

This package includes a non-refundable consultation fee ($300 + GST). Although your lawyer will do a quick sense check before proceeding with the application, this package does not include a full search of the trade mark register or any advice relating to the trade mark registration’s likelihood of success. If after the initial consultation you realise you do not have everything required to proceed with the application, you will have the option of receiving a refund for the remaining cost of the package minus the non-refundable consultation fee.

If the Headstart assessment is adverse, we’ll assess an adverse Trade Mark Headstart report issued by IP Australia for one trade mark. We will also cover the cost of submitting a revised version of your trade mark within the TM Headstart time frame, if applicable.
