From designing and advising on appropriate searches, through to the creation and enforcement of new patent, trade mark, design and domain name rights, Madderns provides a comprehensive range of services spanning the entire intellectual property (IP) life cycle.
We also assist clients in the management of their IP portfolio including conducting audits to fully capture and recognise IP assets, and additionally, provide strategies and advice for identifying and managing risk associated with third party IP rights.
Madderns can also assist clients with business interests in plant breeding (ie. plant breeders rights) or circuit layout protection.
In addition, most of our attorneys are also registered to practice in New Zealand. Our New Zealand services include the filing and prosecution of patent, trade mark and design applications directly with the Intellectual Property Office of New Zealand (IPONZ).
