Tuesday 20th May 2014

Baldwins Intellectual Property is thrilled to announce that five of its attorneys were recently selected by their peers for inclusion in The Best Lawyers in New Zealand© 2014 (Copyright 2013 by Woodward/White, Inc., of Aiken, SC).  Tim Jackson, Wes Jones, Shelley Rowland, Lucy Hudson and Dr Jared Scarlett have been selected for their expertise in intellectual property law.  Ms Rowland and Dr Scarlett have also been acknowledged for their biotechnology law expertise.

“We’re delighted to be acknowledged for our work in intellectual property.  It’s certainly an honour for us to be recognised internationally by our peers.  I think it represents the fact we have a team of world-class attorneys who offer our clients a real depth of expertise across a range of disciplines,” says Shelley Rowland, Partner.

The annual publication of Best Lawyers’ lists of outstanding attorneys are compiled by conducting exhaustive peer-review surveys in which tens of thousands of leading lawyers confidentially evaluate their professional peers.  If the votes for an attorney are positive enough for inclusion in Best Lawyers, that attorney must maintain those votes in subsequent polls to remain on the list for each edition.  Lawyers are not permitted to pay any fee to participate in or be included on their lists.  Best Lawyers peer-reviewed listings are now published in almost 70 countries around the world.
