Protecting Global Brands in New Zealand and Australia

Global Brands

We assist global brands to protect their trade marks in New Zealand and Australia. We also help New Zealand and Australian brand owners protect their brands locally and internationally.

Our team is in particular well-known for their prompt and proactive service, transparent and no surprise pricing and depth of knowledge and experience.

Our experienced trade marks team guides overseas firms and local clients through the intricacies of trade mark registration, enforcement, and protection in New Zealand and Australia. Trade mark clearance, protection and enforcement matters are at the heart of our practice.

Our team are active in the international intellectual property industry, as members of the Intellectual Property Society of Australia and New Zealand (IPSANZ) and International Trade Mark Association (INTA). Scott Moran has been a committee member for almost a decade, sitting on INTA’s Professional Development committee.

Team members are recognised and ranked by Chambers and Partners and the World Trademark Review.

Whether a global brand, a startup, or an established SME, we tailor our services to meet the unique needs and industry-specific challenges our brand owner clients face.


Domain Name Services

We have a successful domain name management and dispute service for key clients in New Zealand and Australia.

In the digital era, securing and managing your online presence is non-negotiable. Our domain experts assist clients in acquiring, protecting, and strategically managing their domain name portfolios.


Intellectual Property Licensing

We assist clients to ensure their intellectual property is protected when licensing while at the same time balancing the need for strategic partnerships.

This often involves helping clients negotiate intellectual property rights in commercial and corporate contracts.


Consumer and Retail Law

We help organisations understand their consumer law obligations in New Zealand and Australia.

We offer extended services to our brand owners to support successful and compliant marketing practices and product, brand and website design.

We advise international clients carrying on business in New Zealand on their loyalty and rewards programs, marketing messages, online content, sales and more.

We support our clients to comply with a broad range of consumer and commercial regulations.
