Ipiphany is a New Zealand intellectual property practice founded in 2008 by two Trans-Tasman Patent Attorneys, Ashlin Redpath and Andy Cable

​Ipiphany provides services and advice relating to intellectual property to clients in New Zealand and internationally.

We have registered Trans-Tasman Patent Attorneys in the Canterbury and Nelson/Tasman regions providing intellectual property services with specific emphasis on drafting, obtaining and protecting patents and registered designs throughout the world.

We enjoy working with people and companies who possess an innovative approach to their business and products and, importantly, who enjoy working with us.


We help to identify, obtain and enhance the value of your business using your intellectual property. 

Intellectual Property (IP) includes legal rights such as patents, trademarks, designs, copyright and plant variety rights. These Intellectual Property rights include the intangible assets that make up the most valuable assets of innovative businesses.


​We can provide advice on all aspects of intellectual property and we specialise in patents and design registrations. We offer a friendly, helpful service with emphasis on building the professional relationship with you and your business.

We’ve been drafting patents for many years and have been instrumental in not only the drafting and prosecution of patents but also in extracting the value of those patents.

We have long-term clients spanning a broad range of mechanical, electro-mechanical and software fields, including continuous working relationships of over 20 years. We’ve built a network of contacts and relationships across the world who can help you obtain value from your intellectual property.

We’re not just here to help you protect your intellectual property. We can also advise you on the sale and licensing of patents, i.e. ‘commercialisation’ or ‘monetisation’. As part of our services we may also be able to put you in contact with other advisors, investors, funding and other businesses to help your venture succeed.​

Here are some of the specific services we offer:

  • Patents – advice, searching, drafting, filing, prosecution, renewals, oppositions, infringement.
  • Designs – advice, searching, drafting, filing, prosecution, renewals, infringement.
  • Trademarks – advice, searching, drafting, filing, prosecution, renewals, infringement.
