Prospective FICPI members should be aware that an attorney (patent or trade mark) no longer needs to be an owner or principle of a firm. The Annual Conference is available to first time attendees who are not yet members, but who would like to experience one of the many benefits of FICPI membership.

If you have any questions regarding a particular conference please go to the Contact Us and seek advice from the President or Secretary of FICPI Australia.
