Michael and Warren have been extremely responsive and strategic in helping me navigate the world of patent protection. It’s also great to know that they regularly visit Tasmania and provide free IP meetings. One of the great things about working with these guys is that they have all the experience of lawyers from the big Australian IP firms and yet you’re dealing with a much smaller and more personable company. Very pleased to have found Cooper IP - I highly recommend you chat to them if you have any IP issues.

I've engaged Cooper IP to help with trademarking our new seafood international brand. Over the last 18 months, Warren has been exceptional, meticulous in his assessment and administration of our applications. He was always available on the phone to answer any questions or talk through a complex situation, which has worked really well for me. When he was on leave, the team at Cooper IP was able to provide seamless business continuity. I am very pleased to have found the right place to help us with trademark services and would highly recommend Cooper IP. Well done Warren, Michael & Wendy!

As a small start-up business we didn't have much of an idea on what IP protection was needed for our business. After our 30min online consultation we felt much more confident with what we needed and had a much better understanding of the process for registering a Trademark. Everything was explained in a simple, clear way for us and we would not hesitate in recommending Cooper IP.

As a graphic designer with a small design studio, I was struggling to resolve an IP issue with a client and was fortunate to find Cooper IP via the IP Australia website. Warren's knowledge and advice regarding intellectual property was invaluable. He was very responsive to the issue and encouraged a cautious and measured approach that resulted in a positive outcome with my client. I highly recommend Cooper IP to anyone in need of professional IP-related services.
