Intellectual Property

Nowadays the process of building and developing sustainable business strategies often depends on the existence of intellectual property (IP) assets. As a consequence, the necessity of IP protection often leads to complex issues.  
 
Our IP team advises clients on IP protection and enforcement strategies and defends their IP rights. Our lawyers select the right options to fit each client’s business strategy, whether
  • they are assessing an IP portfolio;
  • performing due diligence for an acquisition; 
  • securing a patent, trademark, trade secret or copyright, or 
  • using litigation to resolve business disputes over infringement or misappropriation. 
We help our clients protect their investment from infringement and unfair competition, increase their market share and strengthen their competitive advantage.
 
Our firm offers an integrated service on contentious and non-contentious IP, IT and new technology-related issues, including 
  • trademarks; 
  • copyright; 
  • designs and patents; 
  • domain names; 
  • E-commerce;
  • IP transactional work;
  • Licensing;
  • litigation;
  • brand development;
  • prosecution (trademarks and designs); 
  • advertising;
  • software agreements; (and)
  • unfair competition.
Our trademark attorneys provide full-service brand protection. We protect the integrity of our clients’ brands by guiding our clients through the trademark examination and clearance process and by dealing with and resolving any disputes that may subsequently arise.
 
We take a multidisciplinary approach to today’s emerging issues in the development, protection and exploitation of IP assets. Our IP practice is fully integrated with other practices, providing antitrust guidance on transactions and competition disputes before the national competition authority and the state courts.
 
We help our clients protect their competitive advantages by preparing and negotiating enforceable non-competition, non-solicitation, non-recruitment, trade secret, confidentiality and intellectual property agreements with employees, suppliers and customers.
