Welcome to Pipers.

We are a specialist firm of Patent and Trade Mark Attorneys with offices in New Zealand and Australia, and strong relationships with intellectual property professionals in all other jurisdictions.

We have expertise in all areas of intellectual property law and practice and we offer a personal, down-to-earth service, where our attorneys are approachable and readily available to provide assistance.  We are strongly committed to our clients and to forming enduring professional relationships.

We offer new clients a first meeting free of charge, which enables you to obtain some good basic knowledge about IP and to decide on what course of action is best for you without the fear of incurring a fee.

Live updates regarding the operational status of IP Offices on account of COVID-19 and associated indications of whether extensions of time might be available can be found here and also here.

As New Zealand has moved into a new Covid-19 protection framework, we are pleased to be able to welcome clients and colleagues back to our offices for in-person meetings, if fully vaccinated.  All of our staff who are working in our offices are fully vaccinated against COVID-19, and we will ensure that relevant COVID-19 health and safety protocols are followed during any visits to our offices.

We are also very happy to continue to meet with clients and colleagues virtually if preferred.
