About Northern Lights IP

A patent and trade mark attorney firm based in Perth, Western Australia

Northern Lights IP is an Australian intellectual property firm based in Perth, Western Australia. All our patent and trade mark attorneys are registered in Australia and New Zealand.

We offer a broad range of intellectual property (IP) services. Our services include writing and defending patents, protecting business names, registering designs and providing strategic advice.

Northern Lights IP has been founded to provide services that are specifically tailored to the needs of our local and international clients. Most of all, it is important to us to build long lasting and trusting relationships with our clients. Therefore, we have made the decision to stop the clocks and provide fixed pricing for most of our IP services. As a consequence, we can spend more time with our clients and learn about their businesses and commercial goals.

"I've worked with Anja from Northern Lights when we were both mentoring start-ups at Spacecubed in Perth. I would have no hesitation to recommend Anja to anyone wanting IP advice - she's very approachable & friendly, and understands the commercial aspects of Intellectual Property. The fixed-price option for the services at Northern Lights is also a huge bonus - there's no surprises in the bill! I wish Anja and the team at Northern Lights every success..."
