In Australia

Baldwins offers a consolidated approach to managing your IP portfolio in both Australia and New Zealand.

Benefits

Expertise

  • Baldwins patent attorneys are registered in both New Zealand and Australia and act before the Australian intellectual property office - IP Australia.
  • While there are many commonalities in the Australian and New Zealand IP systems, we are skilled at dealing with sophisticated requirements that are different in each country as well as guiding clients to take advantage of overlaps between the two.

Cost

  • Competitive rates for one set of instructions to file in both countries.
  • The relative positioning of the New Zealand dollar to other currencies and trading partners provides substantial cost benefits in having Baldwins attend to your requirements for New Zealand and Australia. 

Code of Conduct

Australian Registered Patent Attorneys are bound by the Australian Code of Conduct for Patent and Trade Marks Attorneys 2013, a copy of which is available here.

While staff who are not Australian Registered Patent Attorneys are not bound by the Australian Code of Conduct for Patent and Trade Marks Attorneys 2013, all their work is carried out under the supervision of an Australian Registered Patent Attorney, who has appropriate technical competency and who is responsible for that work.
