Patents Precedents - Westlaw NZ


Patents Precedents brings together the precedents, forms, procedures and information necessary to manage the grant, maintenance and revocation of patents in New Zealand.

The information in Patents Precedents will guide patent attorneys, legal practitioners and others who are required to oversee the grant of a patent through all steps of the process.

The precedents, forms and other desktop tools are supplemented with extensive commentary from the authors. The commentary follows a logical sequence, combining legislative references with extensive links to the appropriate documents.

Patents Precedents is an ideal resource for any law firm or legal practitioner required to provide advice on patents from time to time. Its comprehensive coverage also means it is equally appropriate for anyone who specialises in the field and requires a set of customisable precedents and process guides.
