Trademarks, Geographical Indications and Copyright
Apart from “hard” IP assets, the top three IP assets are trademarks, geographical indications, and copyrights, which form the vanguard of protection for our clients’ brands. We regularly advise trademark, geographical indication, and copyright holders and users regarding acquiring, managing, enforcing, and exercising their IP rights.
Commercial Intellectual Property
We advise clients on the full range of commercial contracts related to the exercise of all types of IP rights. We advise on the full gamut of IP-driven agreements, including IP rights assignment and domestic and cross-border licensing. We have experience in working for, and negotiating against, counterparties from the EU and the US.
IT, Telecoms & Data
We are a team of experienced lawyers assisting clients with IT, telecoms, and data issues. One of our partners has practiced in data privacy matters since 2010 when the data protection law was adopted and is recognized among the leading lawyers in Privacy and Data Security Law by Best Lawyers International 2020.
Intellectual Property Disputes
Our team has many years of vast experience representing both foreign and domestic clients before courts of all levels in patent, trademark, copyright, and unfair competition disputes. This also enables us to provide practical advice in cases where the client is still assessing its chances of success and evaluating its litigation strategy, or needs to understand how to obtain evidence or how to handle a settlement strategy.
Adverting & Marketing, Media & Entertainment
We have advised foreign and domestic companies in the advertising sector for more than a decade. We advise them on running their cross-border and local advertising campaigns, ensuring compliance of their promotional contests, and on packaging claims, promotional materials with advertising, intellectual property, privacy, gambling, and media law requirements.
