Paul has considerable experience in the preparation and filing of patent, trade mark and design applications in New Zealand and overseas. Paul has advised on complex patent and trade mark infringement matters and prosecuted numerous applications before various Patent Offices including the New Zealand Patent Office, the Australian Patent Office, the US Patent Office, the European Patent Office and the Chinese Patent Office.
