The New Zealand Institute
of Patent Attorneys, Inc

The New Zealand Institute of Patent Attorneys (Incorporated), ("NZIPA" or "The Institute"), established in 1912, is an incorporated body representing most Patent Attorneys registered under the New Zealand Patents Act, and who are resident and practising in New Zealand.

Welcome

Welcome to the website of The New Zealand Institute of Patent Attorneys, Inc (NZIPA).

NZIPA is an incorporated body representing most New Zealand Patent Attorneys registered and practising in New Zealand.

Patent Attorneys operate in the global arena across all sectors of industry to assist businesses in their key markets and to use intellectual property (IP) systems for strategic advantage.

Despite our name suggesting we only consider ‘patents’, this is incorrect. Patent Attorneys are qualified to, and regularly do advise on, all intellectual property rights including trade marks, designs, copyright.

NZIPA:

  • advocates in New Zealand and Australia to advance IP rights
  • runs a Council of 9 members elected by Fellows of the Institute
  • provides educational programmes to not only its members but the general public
  • offers information and support to its members.

More information about IP, what NZIPA does, and how we do it, can be accessed through this website.
