September is proving to be another great month for CreateIP with not one, but three new accolades for IP excellence to add to the trophy shelf.

The first surprise was learning that, for the fifth consecutive year, we have again made it to the finals of the highly prestigious NZ Law Awards in the Intellectual Property Specialist Law Firm of the Year category.

The second was finding out that we achieved top rankings for both Patent Prosecution and Patent Contentious categories in the Asia IP 2017 Patent Survey! Only 10 New Zealand firms can secure this top 10 ranking.

Finally, Rachel Colley will feature in the 2018 edition of WTR 1000 (World Trademark Review) for the first time for expertise in both Trade Mark Prosecution & Strategy and Transaction in the New Zealand section. Her selection was based on market feedback, following five months of research, telephone and face-to-face interviews with trade mark practitioners, as well as corporate counsel, to identify the 1000 leading practitioners and firms in the world.

These are prized recognitions for us. Thanks to all those who nominated us, the judges, and all our fantastic clients, supporters, and family. We’re honoured and we couldn’t have done this without you.
