News  \  24 Nov 2023

We are thrilled to announce that AJ Park has been named Intellectual Property Specialist Law Firm of the Year at this year’s New Zealand Law Awards.

This is the ninth year that AJ Park has received this award, and follows the firm being named New Zealand Patents Firm of the Year at last week's Asia IP Awards, and New Zealand IP Firm of the Year at October’s Global IP Awards.

Judges’ comments included: “A very strong and compelling submission. Very impressive work- especially the number of applications filed. The firm delivers responsive client service and high-quality, actionable advice.

In congratulating AJ Park, NZ Lawyer made note of the firm's "incredible dedication and expertise in the realm of intellectual property law."

Since our establishment over 130 years ago, AJ Park has remained committed to being the leading provider of IP services in New Zealand, and an internationally recognised firm of IP specialists. To receive this honour for a ninth year is testament to everything the firm stands for, as well as to the expertise of our IP professionals and our service offering. I’m incredibly proud to work with such a wonderful team, who are dedicated to supporting our clients with intelligent action, as well as with so many innovative clients who continually provide us with challenging and interesting work,

said AJ Park’s Managing Director, Dr Andrea Dickens.

AJ Park was also named an Excellence Awardee for the Employer of Choice (<100 lawyers) award. 

As a firm, we place huge importance on fostering a work culture where our people are at the fore. Being named an Excellence Awardee for the Employee of Choice award, particularly after being named an Employer of Choice earlier in the year, is a wonderful endorsement of AJ Park’s efforts in this space; recognising our commitment to drive initiatives that engage and empower our people, who are at the heart of the firm’s success,

added Dr Dickens.

“This is a wonderful way to wrap up the year and reflects the ambitious trajectory the firm is on. I am excited to see what we can achieve in 2024!”

Congratulations to all the winners and finalists, and to NZ Lawyer for a wonderful awards night.
