Domain Name Disputes Lawyers

Providing domain name complaint and dispute services.

Protecting your brand online and within domains can be difficult. It is essential that you use qualified and experienced lawyers who understand the domain space to protect your rights and business name.

Our Principal is a former director of the au Domain Administration, is a Domain Name Lawyer, registered Australian trade marks attorney and has protected the online rights of clients for over 10 years.

Launching a .auDRP or UDRP complaint is a cheaper and speedier alternative to litigation. It is an economical form of domain name dispute resolution. It can also be seen as a gentler form of rights enforcement as it assists a party with competing rights and disputes between registrants to have the complaint decided by a panellist with vast experience in settling these types of disputes. Use of a domain name does not only include use of a website at the domain name, but it can include use in email addresses and email accounts.
