AJ Park is a proud winner of the Canon New Zealand Intellectual Property Specialist Law Firm of the Year Award for the second consecutive year awarded at the New Zealand Law Awards.

The awards celebrate excellence within the law profession in Australia and New Zealand, and were presented at the tenth annual 2014 New Zealand Law Awards last night in Auckland. A full list of winners is published here.

'We are honoured to receive this industry award for the second time running, and to be among the leading firms in Australasia. We have expanded our team this year to include a dedicated patents team in Australia and appointed two new partners. Being recognised among our peers is a great benchmark for AJ Park, and is a reflection of the high quality of services we aim to provide to our clients,' says Pete Boyle, Chief Executive, AJ Park.

This year, the award methodology changed and included a call for nominations, short listing of finalists, interviews and research with leading practitioners, and written submissions that detailed the complexity, breadth and innovation of client services and cases. A panel of judges examined and awarded winners in 27 categories.
