Jeremy Hunter

Jeremy is a lawyer and a Patent Attorney having run his own successful commercial practice, Hunter & Co for 12 years. He started his career in intellectual property law firms where he gained experience in trademark, licensing and franchise law and brings a wealth of broad business law expertise to Zone Law. Since then he has developed a particular interest in business, e-commerce, contract and commercial law as well as advising charities in relation to intellectual property, commercial arrangements and compliance obligations.

Jeremy’s experience is across an extensive range of intellectual property, commercial and business law (including property, trusts, and alternative dispute resolution) with a particular interest in contract negotiations. Jeremy is also a member of NZIPA and IPSANZ.

“At Zone Law we’re actually creating something unique because we can look for intellectual property solutions across a broader range of expertise, for example in the areas of marketing, contract, company, trust, copyright, employment and even property law. By this I mean that clients may come to us thinking that intellectual property is the issue, but our broad experience means we can identify opportunities and solutions in other areas of the law. The answer may in fact be in the Companies Act instead of the Trademarks Act, it might even be a commercial rather than a legal answer.  We like to find practical solutions rather than simply looking at what the law can do for someone.”
