PATENTS: Protecting your Technology & Ideas
Our patent attorneys are each known for technical knowledge, legal expertise and a focus on what matters commercially. We file and prosecute patents for leading technology companies and tertiary institutions.
We have particular strengths in the fields of Information Communication Technology (ICT), engineering, manufacturing, automotive, electronics, telecommunications, plastics and packaging.
Our patent team is made of recognised performers from large patent firms now working together in a tight-knit team. They have extensive experience in-house for leading technology commercialisation companies, so we understand how patents are used in commerce.
“New Zealand and Australian businesses are well known for taking on the world. For this reason, we have specialist expertise in foreign intellectual property law and procedures.”
“Origin are very pragmatic and focus on what they think is the best commercial outcome. They are always upfront about the expected costs and timeframes, and they go on to meet these targets. I always feel their fees represent the work they have done.”
