IP Solicitor | 4-7 years PQE

McLeod Duminy Careers

Join a leading IP team with a good range of high quality work and an impressive international client list.

  • Internationally recognised partner
  • Top tier environment and resources
  • Broad ranging IP issues
The partner in this specialist Intellectual Property and TMT team makes it a popular destination. He is known for a pragmatic, down-to-earth approach to his practice and that philosophy is reflected throughout the team.

This role has a non-contentious IP focus working closely with a well-known partner in a team that continues to grow in reputation. Many of the long-standing clients are household names locally and internationally, but there is also a commitment to start-ups and kiwi innovation. They act for organisations across a wide range of industries representing the backbone, as well as, the future of New Zealand's economy.

The work is broad and you should expect to be involved in all aspects of IP including development, protection, transfer, enforcement and commercialisation. They cover the life span of a product or idea from design through development, manufacture, distribution, sales and ongoing protection. Internationally the team advises on branding, distribution, licensing and agency arrangements. There is a small amount of disputes work thrown in for good measure.

You will need at least 3 to 4 years experience in IP issues and a good academic background to cope with intellectual complexity of the work. This role is ideal for you if you are at Senior Solicitor level or hoping to get there very soon. Part-time and flexible working would be considered.
