Baldwins named among world’s leading patent professionals

Thursday 2nd June 2016

Baldwins has been named as a recommended firm in Intellectual Asset Management (IAM) magazine’s annual IAM Patent 1000 guide for 2016. Featuring in both the patent prosecution and litigation & transaction rankings, Baldwins is dubbed “A longstanding favourite of Kiwi innovators across a variety of technology sectors” and “a smooth operator on both sides of the contentious/non-contentious divide”.  

In addition, Wes Jones, Tim Jackson and Paul Johns each received individual recognition in this year’s edition. Partner and Chair, Wes Jones, has been specifically listed as leading individual in the prosecution category. He is commended for his “advanced technical capabilities and sound strategic vision”. In the area of litigation and transactions, partner Tim Jackson is quoted as being “a brilliant tactician and a staunch defender of clients’ rights”. Alongside Tim, Paul Johns, Head of Dispute Resolution is described as a “top performer in all fields of intellectual property”.

This is the third consecutive year both Wes and Tim have been ranked in the guide, with Paul being a newcomer to the rankings in 2016. The firm listing and individual accolades reaffirm Baldwins position as a leading patent practice and our clients can be confident in knowing they have some of the best patent practitioners in New Zealand working for them.
