Intellectual Property Law

We offer comprehensive and expert advice on the identification, registration, protection and defense of all intellectual property rights. We advise on the entire range of commercial agreements in this area, including trademark assignment and licensing, distribution, selective distribution, sponsorship, franchising and Research & Development agreements.

We have extensive experience in the establishment of sophisticated licensing structures, the conduct of complex due diligence exercises on substantial portfolios of patents, trademarks and copyright works, and advising on the creation and enforcement of security interests over intellectual property assets. We also provide strategic advice on the management of trademark portfolios. We represent clients in disputes arising from infringement of trademarks including anti–counterfeiting, copyright, including piracy, technology, database and design rights, and complex unfair competition and patent actions.
