Catalyst Intellectual Property ranked in WTR 1000 2024

We are very pleased to share our inaugural WTR 1000 ranking as a Bronze-band firm for trade mark prosecution and strategy in New Zealand.

WTR 1000 comment: “The trademark capability of Catalyst IP has been greatly enhanced, thanks to the arrival of ex-Ellis Terry members Rachael Koelmeyer and Emily Ellis. The duo’s dynamic brand protection practice covers everything from filing and dispute resolution to commercialisation and negotiation. IP strategist Koelmeyer dispenses valuable counsel to a sector-diverse list of clients, domestic and foreign alike; Ellis, a fixture on the New Zealand IP scene for over two decades, draws judiciously on her stellar European experience to safeguard the IP assets of international brand owners in a holistic approach.”

As recommended individuals, Emily Ellis is ranked silver for prosecution and strategy, while Rachael Koelmeyer holds a bronze ranking.
