We're proud to announce that 12 AJ Park lawyers have once again been selected by their peers for
inclusion in The Best LawyersTM in New Zealand 2019 in the field of intellectual property law.
Managing director Damian Broadley and principals Anton Blijlevens, Anton Gibson, Damon Butler, Greg West-Walker, Hadleigh Brown, John Hackett, Kim McLeod, Mark Hargreaves, Matt Adams, Michael Brown and Teresa Griffiths are featured on the list. Their combined expertise spans several areas of intellectual property including patents, software, biotechnology, trade marks and litigation.
AJ Park represents 30% of the lawyers featured on the intellectual property list—with the highest number of lawyers from any one firm in New Zealand.
Additional recognitions are also awarded to individual attorneys with the highest overall peer-feedback for a specific practice area and geographic region. Only one attorney is recognised as the ‘Lawyer of the Year’ for each specialty and location. We are pleased to report that Damon Butler and Matt Adams of AJ Park were named ‘Lawyer of the Year’ for intellectual property in Auckland and Wellington respectively.
