About James & Wells
James & Wells is an internationally recognized, privately owned Australasian firm of patent and trade mark attorneys, intellectual property experts and litigation lawyers. With offices throughout Australia and New Zealand, we provide a full suite of intellectual property services in both countries as well as the Pacific Islands.
Our attorneys have scientific and technology qualifications in all major subject areas, and our large domestic client base includes the most prestigious research organisations, many of the country’s most innovative companies, as well as leading exporters and manufacturers. We also work with many international clients as their exclusive Australian and New Zealand service provider. 
The firm has one of the largest specialised intellectual property litigation teams in Australasia. The award winning team has built a strong reputation for providing effective representation to clients. While the size of the team allows sufficient flexibility to take on substantial pieces of litigation at short notice, handle major disputes without disruption to other clients or matters, and ensures the consistent provision of fast, commercially relevant advice.
As the only independent IP firm with offices in both Australia and New Zealand, we always put our clients first. Unlike IP firms which are owned by publicly listed companies, we are not governed by commercial interests unrelated to our profession or distracted by the pressures of maximising financial returns to public shareholders. Our independence means we are able to provide cost effective, client focused solutions, and offer certainty around conflict of interest situations.
