Michael Buck IP (MBIP) is an independent, boutique intellectual property firm of Patent and Trade Marks Attorneys based in Brisbane, Australia. Our experience in intellectual property goes back to 1994. 

Our team consists of highly experienced attorneys who have assisted both local and overseas companies with their trade mark and patent portfolios. Our patent attorneys possess qualifications and comprehensive expertise in major technology areas including biology, biochemistry, pharmaceuticals, physics, electrical and mechanical engineering, chemical engineering and materials science and computer science.

Apart from helping our local clients, we also regularly assist attorneys and business people from the USA, China, Europe, Japan and many other countries to obtain patents, trade marks and design registrations in Australia and New Zealand.  If you’re from overseas and need assistance in Australia or New Zealand then contact us for assistance.

We specialise in complex patent matters and our drafting skills are reflected by the fact that MBIP is listed among the top 10 filers of Australian provisional patent applications. MBIP also ranks among the top 10 ranking PCT filers in Australia (based on 2018 - 2020 filing figures). 

For 3 consecutive years, MBIP has been named the winner of the coveted Beaton Research + Consulting Client Choice Award in the category for Best Specialist IP and Related Services (boutique) Firm (2020, 2021 & 2022). MBIP was also included on the World Trademark Review’s WTR1000 list of top Australian firms for trade mark prosecution and strategy, in 2020, 2021 and 2022. Most recently, our firm has been recognised by IAM as a top Australian IP firm for Patent Prosecution (Bronze Level) in their 2022 Patent 1000 rankings.
