Stellar Law specializes in intellectual property law, including the law relating to patents, trade marks, registered designs, copyright, contracts and litigation.
Our team comprises lawyers, trade mark attorneys and patent attorneys. Our patent attorneys aren't merely scientists, but also inventors and entrepreneurs that have been through the commercialization process with their own technology. This helps us understand the hurdles you face and guide you on how to get your product to market. We can advise you from personal experience and not just theory.
Our offices are in Sydney, New South Wales and Surfers Paradise, Queensland.

When I first needed a lawyer recommendation I began phoning every possible company I could find until Steve Davey came across my desk.
Steve has been absolutely wonderful in every aspect. He made sure that every move that was made for my company was done accurately.
He completed my trade mark and completed the provisional patent application which in fact was the most important document securing my companies protection from any possible threat.
Steve continues to call me out of his own time just to check in to make sure everything is going well with the company. Now this type of service just doesn't happen nearly at all.
Steve is a rare and extremely caring professional lawyer and I would highly suggest that if you require one to look no further than Stellar Law.
I look forward to what the future holds for my company and knowing Steve is always a phone call away for any advice that's needed.

I reached out to Stellar IP Law with regards to a trade mark Infringement case and my oh my what service did I receive?
OUTSTANDING!! 10/10 all round!!
Firstly, I contacted the director of the company Steve Davey on his mobile one Monday morning, very early and out of hours, and left a message. Instantly I received a returned call even though he was over in Seattle at the time on a work trip. Already I was impressed by the response rate to my case not to mention the time he took discussing my current circumstances and the clear, concise course of action that was required, although being very busy Steve immediately put my case into action.
I was then passed over to my case Manager, Frank Pappas and again was impressed by the prompt follow up and immediate action with regards to my case. Frank is not only a highly experienced Trade Mark Attorney but also a true professional who actually cares and has the time and patience to clearly explain every step in the process. He also loves going through paperwork and documentation and he has excellent attention to detail. Given the state of my files I was astounded by the way he sifted through pages and pages of documentation and successfully put a supporting case together to defend my company.
I could sit here and write paragraphs and paragraphs praising their services and could not highly recommend them enough, so if you are seeking IP legal advice look no further than Stellar IP Law!!

Working with Steve has been extremely helpful. Steve is very knowledgeable, has an eye for detail, efficient and a pure pleasure to work with! He has been particularly helpful in the area of working with Amazon, trademarks and patents. Thank you Steve for all your hard work and for assisting to put my mind at ease with workable solutions
I would like to personally thank you [Steve] for your assistance with the Verifai patent. Normally, other than meetings, I have always worked at arm’s length from the attorney undertaking the application. Your method of working [together online] certainly made the job so much easier and much quicker to achieve a result. It was fast and efficient.

Best Decision Ever
Right from the moment I spoke with Steve he was open, honest, clear in explaining things & most importantly had a genuine care to help me.
I had spoken with a heap of Lawyers prior to Steve & I just felt they were out to take money from me, with no real desire to help.
Steve is definitely not that Lawyer & I highly recommend using him for any of your legal jobs.
Steve was super efficient & dumbed down the legal lingo so that I could understand what was needed & being written.
I will absolutely be recommending him to everyone & using him for all of my future work.

Wow, we had the great idea and were referred to Stellar Law by some other legal colleagues. That was Friday. By Sunday night, our Provisional patent was done, Monday morning we did a few brief edits, lodged by lunchtime. Gave Steve 11/10 in a back reference to the lawyers who recommended him. I’ve lodged a few Patents in years gone by, but never had such a professional experience as what has just happened, even done 100% remotely during COVID19 lockdowns. Thanks Steve and Stellar Law for such great service. Now we can get on with what we need to do with the products and applications. Wow!!
First read through and it's looking pretty darn good. Well done you too. :) Steve, testimony to your capability and style: Earle mentioned that it was very easy to work with you, and he found the whole process to be very straightforward and efficient. Good on you!
Secure Forte Pty Ltd
It was an absolute pleasure to work with Steve Davey on our Patent. Having worked with other Patent lawyers over the years and finding it a complicated process to complete, Steve was able to understand our idea and put the concept into words in a short time frame. The whole process from start to submitting the Patent was an enjoyable one, and I highly recommend Steve to anyone who wishes to apply for a Patent.
Wild Grace Performance Pty Ltd
I’m really grateful for Steve’s work. Starting up my new business and putting in place all of the foundational processes and law contracts felt really effortless working with him. I was drawn to Steve because of the confidence and expertise I felt from him as a trademark and patent attorney, which proved right. He is knowledgeable as well as efficient and reliable. I highly recommend working with Steve.
My company engaged Steve Davey to write and submit our provisional patent application for software we have created. The work was concise and his level of expertise was brilliant. Steve's knowledge base was second to none. My Co founder and I feel confident that the advice we received and the work completed was well worth the money we paid. We will be using him again. I highly recommended Steve Davey. Many thanks for everything you have done for us. Our website can be accessed at www.funeralbookings.com

I had great pleasure telling lawyers who were doing other work for us that Steve was able to complete the work after they said it was not possible. We will be using Steve in the future and will be telling our old lawyers we won't be using them anymore as I have outsourced someone who was better priced! He was a pleasure to deal with and he made the process easy.
Great experience, easy to work and knowledgable
Steve has been great to work with and will be hiring him to continue with other facets of my project needs (patent). Genuinely cares about your project, asks questions and gives straight forward and informative responses and is just really easy to talk with.

We were recently faced with a situation where another business owner had breached our trademark and was expanding nationally with his business.
We engaged the services of Steve Davey to advise on the situation and are very glad we did! Steve was quick to respond and provided clear, succinct, expert advice and took decisive action on the matter. We ultimately decided that a settlement was the best outcome and reached agreement for a very satisfactory sum.
The other party commented that he wished he’d had Steve on his side!
We highly recommend Steve for IP-related legal issues.
I found Steve to be excellent to work with in drafting my provisional patent as he friendly and easy to communicate with. Steve was able to quickly and thoroughly understand the all the elements of my invention and then organize them into a logical, easy to understand and well written provisional patent application.
Steve assisted us select our Angel Key Publications company name. What impressed us most about Steve was not only his professional manner. His attention to detail and fast response to our questions on an ongoing basis gave us much peace of mind. The cost was more than reasonable too. Steve Davey cared about us every step of the way.
