Trademarkings was created by Daniel McIntosh. Daniel worked as an intellectual property lawyer in traditional law firms for several years and quickly realised that much of the work of a law firm is administrative and paralegal work. He believed there could be a way that clients only paid for legal work and not paralegal or administrative work. And so 10 years ago he started his own firm which has since gone on to challenge the big established law firms, at only a fraction of the costs.

How is this done? Essentially by digitising and modernising every system and function of a trademark attorney firm. We don’t have traditional offices, we don’t have nice couches, we don’t offer coffee. We do have one of Australia’s finest trademark attorneys, we use the most sophisticated digital management system, we do always get back to you immediately, and we do still have a 91% success rate.

Daniel McIntosh, trademark attorney, handles every trademark personally to ensure your matter gets the right attention.



We are registered trademark attorneys

This is all we do and we are experts.  We recommend you always use a registered trademark attorney for your matter

Real people

We do not offer an “assisted filing service” or an “online filing service”. A real life trademark attorney will personally attend your matter and ensure your trademark provides you with the best protection for your business.

Our Registration Guarantee!

If you choose our “Bundle” option where we first conduct a search and then file your trademark, we provide you with our Registration Guarantee, where if your first application is rejected, we will file your amended or second application for no extra fee (but you pay any additional government charge).

Lowest fees

We offer you the lowest fees around. And all our fees are fixed. It’s that simple.

We’re always contactable

We can always answer any of your question. We prefer to respond in writing via email, but we are more than happy to arrange a call back if you prefer to speak to someone.

Confidential and secure

All your communications with us are confidential and we keep everything secure.

91% success rate

We have an exceptional track record in getting our clients’ trademarks accepted.
