Intellectual Property

“Ideas can be appropriated, shared with others or even given away. There is no one-size-fits-all rule.”

Our firm is recognized for its expertise in the field of Intellectual Property Rights and, more specifically, for its work with trademarks, industrial designs, copyrights, trade secrets and inventions. Our IP team provides specialized advice and focused assistance both in and out of court. Whether as litigators or negotiators of IP specific deals, we aim to support other firm’s teams, particularly in the context of commercial contracts, M&A transactions and other multidisciplinary transactional work.

Although actively involved in opposition proceedings, particularly with respect to trademarks, the firm does not offer filing and prosecution services for IP registrations. For these services, we rely on a consolidated outside network of trusted trademark and patent agents who specialize in this area

The industrial sectors that we have assisted with IP law matters include, amongst others, those which specialize in maintenance and provision of financial indices, electronic goods, information technology, publishing, biotechnology, toys, food products and audio-visual works. We are highly skilled at managing complex litigation, assisting in devising intellectual assets management and protection strategies, and drafting technology transfer agreements and licensing transactions for both public and private research institutions.
