Are you looking for an opportunity to expand your horizons and experience something new, either long-term or for a couple of years?

Here’s your chance to relocate or return to New Zealand and enjoy a quality lifestyle in Auckland—ranked one of the world’s best cities to live in!

AJ Park is recognised internationally as a top tier specialist intellectual property (IP) law firm. We act for a diverse range of clients from start-ups and small to medium enterprises, to publically-listed multinationals, government, and research institutes. Approximately half of our revenue is derived from our international client base, which spans some 130 countries.

We're on the lookout for a patent attorney to join our Auckland patent team. Candidates will be partly qualified or qualified as a patent attorney in Canada, Europe, the United Kingdom, Ireland, Australia or New Zealand. Ideally, you will have five to eight years’ of post-qualification work experience.

In this role, you'll work with a wide range of New Zealand and Australian clients operating across a broad spectrum of technologies and sectors. Many of our clients are export-focused, so require assistance in protecting and commercialising their IP in a diverse range of jurisdictions around the globe. Day to day, your role will provide ample opportunity for learning, stimulation, and variety.

AJ Park has an enviable and long-established reputation in the market. We consistently rank among the leading IP firms in Australasia, and are recognised as having one of the top specialist teams of IP experts in the world. In 2017, we were once again named ‘Specialist IP Firm of the Year’ in the NZ Law Awards for the fifth year running, and several of our people have received numerous accolades for their work. We are proud of our achievements, which are testimony to the quality of work we are privileged to do on behalf of our clients.
