Fantastic service and honest advise! I had two items to discuss, purchasing a franchise business which this guys have helped amazingly well. They highlighted the items that I needed to be aware of, they also guided me through where I stand in terms of my business dispute with other matters - in one on one meeting.

I met with Oliver, what a great guy with right energy and everything to the point, no fluff advise and no fake hopes.

I was also greeted by Sam, the co-director and had a nice few mins chat out of his busy day.

I will use them for future legal matters, no doubt.

We were recommended by one of our trusted Creative friends. Our journey with Trademark from concept to approval has been simplified by the team at IP Partnership. We have since returned for additional advice in intellectual property. We thoroughly recommend IP Partnership for assistance.

We were lucky enough to be referred to IP Partnership to Trademark our company and we are ever so grateful. Everything was so smooth and we were so well informed by both Alize and Sam. For an experience very new to us, they kept us in the loop and nothing was ever a bother. Very happy with the service.

It was an absolute pleasure working with IP Partnership.
Many of us, do research on finding a legal firm that caters for our needs. In my case, I were sourcing a professional firm in the expertise of Franchise Agreements that would be able to deliver all our potential business requirements/specifications and advise us to a secure, safe and profitable business.
My partner and I were looking into acquiring a franchise business with some challenging issues. Many nights of toss and turning with stress as to what is of the BEST interest for us before signing the agreement - believe me no stones were left unturned to help us source the best advise. Olivier, Mikayla and IP Partnership team went above and beyond - listening to our woes, concerns, stresses - being patient, caring and clear in their communication of their advise. We listened to the advice given and decided with confidence to NOT proceed forward with signing our franchise agreement - we have not looked back! IP Partnership - you are OUTSTANDING! Look no further with researching for a Franchise legal firm - you are in good hands!

Many thanks to Gemmah, Oliver and the rest of the team at IP Partnership for all their assistance in negotiating a business purchase (and a subsequent complex series of other agreements). This was the first business purchase I have been involved in and I didn't realise how complex it would be when we started. Gemmah was the main person who handled my matter and was very clear in her recommendations, prompt with all replies and paperwork. It made what could have been a stressful purchase a smooth process. Would very much recommend this firm.

"I have had the pleasure of working with Sam Rees and his team for a few years now and I cannot speak highly enough of their professionalism, responsiveness, quality legal advice and commercial assistance. No task is too complex for IP Partnership and the team is always capable of facilitating our transactions in a tax effective and commercially pragmatic way. IP Partnership have assisted with a variety of commercial transactions including preparing shareholder's agreements, unit and share sale agreements, and company registrations; all of which involved liaising with our accountants to facilitate each transaction in a tax effective and commercially pragmatic way.

I can highly recommend IP Partnership and thank you for everything you do for us!"

After working with multiple Gold Coast based law firms, we've been extremely happy with the service we've received from IP Partnership.
The level of service they have provided to us has been unmatched; the team is responsive, knowledgeable and clearly take pride in their work.
Most closely, we've worked with Oliver and Gemmah, who have assisted us with the drafting of a number of agreements. The quality of work delivered has been outstanding.
We highly recommend IP Partnership to anyone that is looking for a legal team they can rely on, and we look forward to continuing to work with the team in the years to come.

IP Partnership lawyers depth of knowledge and experience in franchising is second to none. IP Partnership and Sam Rees are proactive, documents have always been prompt and they have always kept us abreast of all our requirements as a franchisor. In an industry so regulated as franchising with a constantly changing code, it's a comfort knowing they've got our back..

We couldn't be happier after using and continuing to use the team at IP Partnerships. Sam, Laura, Gemmah and the whole team are responsive at all times and straight forward. We have been given clear answers and have never felt like any task is too small. They are all knowledgeable, friendly, professional and this relieved a lot of stress, as we franchised our business. We were able to franchise our business within a couple of months and I can’t thank the team enough. Highly recommend.

OMORFIE was referred to IP Partnership through a mutual associate to complete Trademark filings internationally. IP Partnership is organised and effective. Their communications are clear and timely. Overall, the service was very good and would happily recommend to others looking for assistance in this area.

I couldn't have been more satisfied with the service I received from Oliver and the staff at IP Partnership.
They were transparent, professional and extremely diligent.
They were clear with the costs of their professional services and completed the works required well within the agreed timeframe to an extremely high standard.
I recommend IP Partnership very highly if you require any franchising lawyer services.

I have been working with IP Partnerships for nearly 8 years . They helped and supported me to get my documents together to franchise my service based business. They actually gave me the confidence to do this. It is a big step.
There was a time that I was actually ready to discontinue with the model as I didn’t feel it was working how I had thought it would. IP Partnerships, Sam in particular spent much time talking with me about other options. Not to throw the baby out with the bath water. We re worked the contracts and a few years later we are now reaping the benefits.
Such a great firm for anyone wanting to franchise/licence their business to get the support they need to grow their business with confidence.
Can’t recommend them highly enough.

I would like to personally take this opportunity to share my experience with; Sam Rees and the incredible team of Professionals at IP Partnership.

Regarding Company structures – IP Partnership personally work hand in hand with your Accountant, ensuring the tailored structure has been formed, ensuring it maximizes all perspectives from legal protocols to accounting principles. The modulated structure that was advised and presented for review, answered all my questions, was explained in detail, and is the exact footprint chosen and registered successfully. Regarding Trademarks – the team work above and beyond; from due diligence of your proposed trading name and your logo, all the way through to the recommended classifications – believe me no stones are unturned. I listened to the advice given and was more than happy to instruct the team to proceed the applications, with confidence – I haven’t looked back!

I have just completed the sale of a Franchise after 14 years of ownership. Sam, Molly & Ellen were fantastic to deal with and there was never any issue raised too hard to deal with.

This is the second time I have had assistance from Sam and his team. The sale was completed within the budget they quoted me so I was very happy with that.

I can highly recommend the service of IP Partners and wish Sam and the team all the very best for the future. Lovely people.
