Hello. Kia ora. Gidday. Welcome to CreateIP!

We are a commercially-savvy, plain-speaking New Zealand IP firm offering big firm knowledge with the advantage of a boutique format. Small ‘but perfectly formed’, we partner with our clients to provide ‘in-house’ specialist IP counsel services to ensure that our clients prosper from their clever branding and innovative product ideas.

Our difference is a fresh, proactive and personal approach that our clients appreciate and trust. Our client base has grown primarily via referrals from happy clients.

At CreateIP we don’t talk in riddles and send you pro-forma jargon-filled letters. We pick up the phone. We visit your premises. We get to know you and your business so we can work alongside you to guide you from seed to success.

We are straight-talking.

We provide clear, pragmatic advice.

We set out options tailored to fit your business objectives and budget.
