Trade Mark Lawyer vs Trade Mark Attorney

In Australia the role of a Trade Mark Attorney is often confused with a Trade Mark Lawyer. “Trade Mark Lawyer” is a common search mistake when seeking trade mark protection or dealing with trade mark infringement. This is because a Trade Mark Lawyer isn’t a recognised position in Australia.
