Rob McInnes on IP

"Thirty years ago, only 20% of a typical listed company's value would be represented by intan- gible assets, today the figure is closer to 80%. It's arguable that IP is now the main source of sustainable competitive advantage for almost all businesses."
Rob McInness, Partner
Spruson & Ferguson
(Austr. Innov. 2008 p51) 


IP (noun, abbrev. for)
in·tel·lec·tu·al prop·er·ty

Property or intangible asset arising from a novel creation of the mind, such as a design, manuscript, innovation or invention which may be protected by a patent, copyright, trademark, etc.

Patent Attorneys, Lawyers & Business Consultants

No Competition!
IP Resources is not competing with the IP and legal professions. IPR does not provide legal advice, nor do we draft, file or prosecute patents.  IPR's main role is to help clients make the right commercial choices and then to help them access expert IP and legal resources, at the right time, for the right purpose. IPR is already working with a number of Sydney-based firms who are happy to introduce clients, where they feel that would add value to them.

Client Assistance
The close-engagement and hands-on commercial assistance IPR provides to clients goes beyond what most lawyers and IP professionals are able to provide.  We make it our business to really understand our client's business and to help them translate their personal and business drivers into commercial outcomes.  Your clients will appreciate your introduction and the success we can help deliver for them will cement your relationship with that client.

Future work
Often, clients don't know when and what professional support they need and at which stage of the commercialisation process. As we are working closely in the client's business, not just on the client's main project, we are often alerted to additional opportunities and able to refer these for expert legal or IP input at the right time.

Network & Referrals
In the course of business, IPR comes across a range of different technologies requiring professional IP or legal assistance and we are always interested in meeting experienced practitioners in the field, so that we can feel comfortable recommending individuals with specific expertise and track record in a particular area to our clients.

We look forward to hearing from you.  Why not: contact us today!
