Baldwins has been acquired by AJ Park

Baldwins has joined AJ Park and now operates as one firm under the AJ Park brand.

On 16 October 2020, AJ Park acquired Baldwins. The Baldwins team has joined AJ Park and now operates as one firm under the AJ Park brand.

Very little will change for Baldwins’ clients as a result of this process. We will continue to work with you as we always have, but as a combined firm you will now have access to: 

  • an expanded team of IP experts in New Zealand
  • greater depth of experience across a range of technologies
  • high-quality IP services in Asia through the IPH group businesses.

AJ Park's team of highly-skilled IP experts is now strengthened by the addition of the following ex-Baldwins professionals.
