Baldwins is alone among New Zealand IP firms in having its own in house dedicated search team. The expertise of our searchers has been developed over many years and is unparalleled in New Zealand. Our team provides searches of the patent, trade mark and design registers and conducts in depth market place searches.
Searching services enable clients to stay informed of market activity, industry developments and applications for rights which may be potentially competitive or trespassing. They are the crucial first step in any measure taken to enforce intellectual property rights. A watching service will also enhance existing brand protection and can be used to stay abreast of competitors' movements by monitoring trade mark applications and the use of brands in the market place.
