Intellectual Property Law

The success of many businesses is based on their intellectual property (IP). We preserve such valuable corporate assets by registering industrial property rights and assist in defending them against infringement by third parties. We design, draft and negotiate cooperation, licensing and technology transfer agreements, and will advise and support you in any transactions relating to IP. We will also advise you on all matters relating to competition law, and will employ our extensive litigation experience to represent you in the assertion of your rights.

Intellectual Property Law

Intellectual property is often the core value of a business. Protection and developing it strategically is a top priority and requires the professional support, which is offered by us.
