Join the brilliant minds protecting the world's brightest ideas.

If you're inspired by brilliant thinking, come and work with our team of IP experts at one of Australasia's leading IP firms and help protect, build and grow some of the world's most exciting engineering ideas and innovations.

AJ Park is recognised as having one of the top specialist teams of IP experts in the world. Our clients range from start-ups and small to medium enterprises, to publicly-listed multinationals, government, and research institutes across 130 countries.

Right now, we're on the lookout for patent professionals with a relevant degree and preferably three to eight years' post-qualification work experience, specialising in physics or mechanical, aeronautical or process engineering through to mechatronics, electrical and electronic engineering. Ideally, you will be qualified as a patent attorney in Canada, Europe, the United Kingdom, Ireland, Australia or New Zealand with three or more years' post-qualification work experience. Alternatively, you will be qualified or near-qualified with three or more years' work experience.

You'll join an acclaimed firm awarded 'Specialist IP Firm of the Year' in the New Zealand Law Awards from 2013 to 2017, working alongside people who have received numerous accolades for their work.

You'll do interesting work, and learn a great deal as you go, for a wide range of New Zealand and Australian clients across a broad spectrum of technologies and sectors. Many are export-focused. They look to us for assistance in protecting and commercialising their IP in diverse jurisdictions around the globe.

AJ Park has an enviable reputation in the market and is a great place to work. We have a strong people-focused culture and have recently been named in NZ Lawyer's inaugural Employer of Choice report listing the 25 top-ranking legal organisations in New Zealand in terms of overall employee experience.

We were also a finalist in the 'Employer of Choice' category of the New Zealand Law Awards 2019.

New Zealand is a wonderful place to enjoy a quality lifestyle. The country is internationally renowned for its great outdoors, friendly people and relaxed way of life. If you're interested in relocating or returning to New Zealand and you enjoy working in a supportive environment that places a strong emphasis on work/life balance, career development and professional growth, take this opportunity to join our award-winning team of IP specialists. We'll provide you with relocation and visa support.
