Intellectual Property Practice
Our Intellectual Property Practice Unit (IPU) delivers innovative intellectual property legal services to our clients on trademark, copyright, patent and design. From the inception of an idea to the global marketing of products, our firm partners with its clients to anticipate and minimize future conflicts while maximizing present opportunities.
The firm handles all matters (both of a contentious and non-contentious nature) relating to trademarks, patents, copyright, designs, franchising, licensing, distributorship agreements and technology transfer. We search, secure and enforce the protection of trademarks and patents around the world. We also undertake to protect the interests of software and media firms under both copyright and licensed work agreements while providing advisory services to our clients on regulatory issues that arise in e-commerce.
Our expertise also extends to protecting and enforcing our client’s intellectual property rights before Arbitration Tribunals, the Trademarks Registrar and Federal High Courts. We approach each transaction with the same balanced, client-focused perspective regardless of transaction size or complexity. Our goal is to remain on the cutting edge of this rapidly changing field to help preserve our clients’ competitive edge.
