New Zealand’s ‘champions of innovation’ win at NZ Law Awards

Home » News, articles and events
James & Wells, New Zealand’s fastest-growing independent intellectual property law firm, was last night named the country’s top Intellectual Property Specialist at the NZ Law Awards.

This rounds out a game-changing year for the intellectual property law sector with regulatory, structural and ownership changes all having an impact on the profession and its clients.

It’s against this backdrop that James & Wells has steadfastly held to its strategy to build on its reputation as New Zealand’s dominant, privately-owned IP law practice championing innovation – a strategy that has seen significant growth in its client base.

This has proven to be a winning formula with client testimonials referring to the firm as “pragmatic, commercial and knowledgeable”.

Managing Partner Tim Walden said of the win, “It is nice to get external recognition for all the hard work that the James & Wells team has put in.”

Working in synch with a wide range of sponsorship partners including The Icehouse, NZ Food Awards, the Technology Investment Network (TIN) and NZ Fine Food Awards, the James & Wells team take great pride in the role they play in educating and supporting the growth of innovative New Zealand businesses.

“We’re a home-grown, privately-owned Kiwi business ourselves so we have real empathy and appreciation for the challenges and opportunities of building and growing a business from New Zealand. It really is a privilege to represent so many of our most innovative companies and to help them succeed here and internationally.” said Walden.
