Intellectual Property

In the fast-developing context of the digital age in which we live, there is a great search for solutions to old and new problems and for creative, high-quality and pertinent content, delivered in a novel way. Whether we are talking about brands, designs, digital and industrial technology, or innovation of any kind, in general, both market leaders and start-ups are striving to maximise their brain-power in order to capture a larger piece of the pie.

Our IP lawyers help innovators and their customers to tackle the various challenges presented by the creation, protection, use and exploitation of intellectual property. We enable our clients to grow their IP both on a local and international scale, and show them how to work effectively and in a timely manner to stop any infringements that may occur and battle out complex IP disputes.

We use our expertise in intellectual property to add value to our advice on projects in other areas, such as Technology, Media & Telecom, Mergers & Acquisitions, or Taxation, where the safeguarding and the value enhancement of intangible assets are important drivers in making a business decision.
