We are the Experts in Patents in Australia & New Zealand

We have an experienced team of attorneys covering a broad range of technologies from life sciences, the mechanical arts to software.  No matter the situation, our attorneys will be able to assist you in obtaining patent rights in Australia and New Zealand in a cost effective manner.  Relatively speaking, the Australian and New Zealand patent systems are flexible and inexpensive.

As one of the largest filers of locally originating patent applications in our state (Queensland), we understand our associate’s needs to be able to trust the timeliness, quality and consistency of our work

We are an independent firm, owned solely by its attorneys.  As such, unlike many Australian firms, Kings does not have external shareholders and is not traded on the stock market.
