Commercial Lawyer


If you’re inspired by brilliant thinking, come and work with our team of intellectual property (IP) experts at one of Australasia’s leading IP firms and help protect, build and grow some of the world’s most exciting ideas and innovations.

About us

AJ Park is recognised as having one of the top specialist teams of IP experts

in Australasia. Our clients range from entrepreneurs, start-ups and SMEs, through to government institutions, multinationals and major listed companies. We represent many innovative and iconic companies in New Zealand and Australia, as well as over a third of the Fortune 500 companies.

AJ Park’s commercial team focuses on technology and IP transactions. Our expertise covers a broad spectrum of corporate and commercial law, including licensing, distribution and manufacturing agreements, ICT agreements, franchising, joint ventures and research collaborations. We help clients devise and refine their commercialisation strategies and work with them to turn their ideas into strategic, commercial assets.

The role

Right now, we have an opportunity for a lawyer with three to six years’ experience in commercial law. You will be client focused, proactive, and driven. Contract drafting skills are essential, and experience with technology and IP matters would be an advantage, but not necessary.

This role will see you advising on technology and IP transactions and related commercialisation strategies, involving all kinds of IP, including patents, trade marks, copyright, registered designs, and plant variety rights, along with related regulatory issues. 

Our offer

AJ Park has an enviable reputation in the market and is a great place to work. We have a strong people-focused culture and have recently been named in NZ Lawyer’s inaugural Employer of Choice report.

We can offer the right candidates unparalleled access to cutting edge work, and excellent opportunities for professional growth in a friendly and supportive team that places a strong emphasis on diversity and inclusion.

If you’d like to work with us, then take this opportunity to join our award-winning team of IP specialists.
