Who|What


At Potter IP, our aim is to make intellectual property

  • relevant,
  • accessible, and
  • understandable

We've designed the process of protecting your intellectual property to be as enjoyable and educational as possible.  While even we freely admit that the subject matter can sometimes be a little dry, your relationship with an IP advisor doesn’t have to be.

We are acutely aware that when it comes to our relationship with clients, one size does not fit all. Each of our clients receives service and pricing tailored to their specific needs.  

Even though we’re super-qualified to provide you with all aspects of IP assistance (patents, trade marks, designs and litigation), we’ve made a deliberate decision to primarily operate in the trade mark, branding and IP portfolio management, and IP strategy spaces.  We don't draft and file patent applications or undertake patent infringement searching - you need experts in your technology to do that.  But we won't leave you in the lurch when you need patent, design or commercial law assistance.  In fact, we'll work with you to help to find the most suitable searching and drafting expert  (in New Zealand, Australia, or beyond) for your specific technology needs.  And if it helps, we are more than happy to guide you through the process with that attorney to make sure it fits your overall IP strategy.
