Intellectual Property

In this area we are committed to providing the best protection and allowing our clients to extract the maximum value from their Intellectual Property Rights.

Our team is highly specialised to assist in ordinary and extraordinary circumstances.

We can represent our clients in any dispute before courts and administrative authorities and give comprehensive counsel at every stage of IP protection and development, including:

  • Patent litigation and appeals;
  • Post-grant proceedings;
  • Patent prosecution;
  • Portfolio counselling and technology, transfer and licensing;
  • Copyright, trademark, trade secret and unfair competition counselling and litigation.

We can assist with licensing, distribution, franchising and R&D agreements and offer support with joint ventures and strategic alliances, through the transfer of technologies.

We are experienced in copyright related matters and we help our clients through registration and licensing, enforcing their copyrights where needed and preventing infringement of the copyrights.
