IP is an important speciality within our broader corporate and commercial practice. It is also fed by our international, technology, media and telecommunications practices.

Our commercial clients benefit from close collaboration and input from our IP lawyers as IP plays an important role in many areas of practice such as M&A, employment, and capital raising. We can take a technology or IP related company from formation to IP protection and commercialisation, capital raising and through to a float or sale, whilst handling all their legal needs along the way.

The IP advice we provide is enhanced by a close collaboration with technology and commercial lawyers so the focus is on overall IP commercialisation and value enhancement.

Our practice has a strong international flavour and we regularly work on cross-border transactions. Lowndes is the sole New Zealand representative of the international networks Multilaw, Legalink, and the International Network of Independent and Boutique Law Firms. From these and other international relationships our firm receives a strong flow of overseas instructions for the protection of IP in New Zealand. We are also well resourced to provide multi-jurisdictional advice to our clients in close collaboration with our colleagues from the networks.

Lowndes has also acted for some of the largest multinational companies in IP disputes, litigation and the protection of clients’ IP rights in NZ.

Lowndes’ leading IP practice is recognised in the Legal500 Asia Pacific and the Asialaw Profiles international directories.
