We help companies and individuals identify, develop, protect, commercialise, manage and enforce their IP rights in New Zealand, Australia and throughout the world. Our clients range from entrepreneurs, start-ups and SMEs, to government institutions, multinationals and major listed companies across 130 countries.

We’re looking for a smart person with a minimum of 3-4 years’ administrative or secretarial experience to join our patents team assisting a senior lawyer/attorney. Legal experience is preferable, however, full training will be given to the successful candidate.
