Despite a decline of 2.4 per cent in Australian patent filings in 2023, Madderns rose above most, having the largest increase of the leading 10 patent filing firms with 10.3 per cent growth.

Madderns is the 10th largest employer of patent attorneys in Australia and New Zealand, with our filing share growing from 1.4 per cent in 2014 to 2.5 per cent in 2023.

Industry blogger Mark Summerfield in patentology discusses why filing numbers declined for some firms. The reasons are complex and worth a read in patentology.

Headquartered in Adelaide but operating across Australia and internationally, Madderns has been working with clients for more than 50 years, with our experienced team – many with PhDs in their field expertise – on-hand to provide strategic and commercially-relevant advice to support clients to protect their intellectual property.

Central to that is building long-term relationships to ensure the intellectual property assets of our clients are protected in their markets.

Managing Partner Jeff Holman says maintaining and exceeding high standards is essential and part of the ethos at Madderns, including in developing long-term relationships with businesses. For many clients, that means almost becoming part of the furniture – and understanding every aspect of their idea and their business.

“Client service is very important at Madderns and I have no doubt that these results are due to the strength of our team combined with our continued unwavering focus on client service. It is an awesome mix,” Jeff says.

“When you work with Madderns, we become part of your team, and we look forward to providing the highest quality ongoing support and service.”
