Jason Tuck

Senior Associate

You’d probably recognise a few of Jason’s clients; they’re the type of businesses that feature on Fortune 250 lists. But whether a global king pin, or a solo Kiwi trying to break into the New Zealand market, Jason is passionate about crafting IP strategies to meet unique business objectives.

Away from the office, Jason loves to “relax” with his family: dad and husband are his key job titles. He has visions of living out his dreams of playing professional basketball vicariously through one of his children.

But don't take our word for it

"Jason has that great ability to listen, question and understand even quite complex technical issues, and then translate these into actions that invariably achieve our business objectives. TRT rate Jason and the team at James & Wells very highly"

Kevin Chubb, Managing Director

"Jason is always engaging and provides great advice and a clear rationale for his advice. He understands the tech space very well and can see IP opportunities. We have worked with Jason for a few years now and he has been instrumental in helping us secure our patents around communications, social and near field communications. I would highly recommend Jason to anyone"
