Intellectual property law relates to the rights and ownership of one’s intangible assets, such as your ideas, inventions, or other creations. Below we have listed how they are divided. For more information about the sections, please get in touch with our team.
Patents are monopoly rights that prevent others from manufacturing, using, or selling your invention without your express permission. Essentially, they protect the mechanism by which your invention works, how it is done, its components, and the way it is manufactured. An application for patent rights can be granted in different jurisdictions, and the application process can between take 3-5 years.
We advise on patent validity and infringement, and we are representing clients in both offensive and defensive litigation in the Patent Office and IP Enterprise Court.
Protecting and enforcing copyrights are the main foundations of our IP services. We regularly assist our clients secure global copyright privileges and ownership of copyright assets, including:
• Assignments from Third-Parties and Independent Contractors
• Dealing with Employee Issues, Authorship, and Joint Authorship Matters
• Idea Submission and Work for Hire Issues
We provide strategic advice regarding licensing copyrighted works, entertainment properties, and software, including counselling clients on open source issues. We also counsel clients on enforcing copyrights and defending copyright claims in litigation and appeals. What’s more, we also coordinate with foreign lawyers in order to enforce rights and defend claims abroad.
Trademarks help to protect the uniqueness of your business - they can be names, expressions, tags, designs, logos, or signs. In order to own the brand identity of your business, you need to own exclusive rights to its use by registration.
We assist our clients in developing the uniqueness of their brands through correct trademark use and registration, and develop corresponding enforcement strategies geared toward identifying potential infringements early. By partnering with our clients to develop individualised approaches to trademark protection, we can also make prosecution and enforcement decisions with an eye toward how those decisions ultimately will affect litigation directed at other portions of their trademark portfolio, which can result in significantly reduced litigation costs.
We aggressively prosecute and defend:
• Trademark and Infringement
• Unfair Competition
• Trademark Dilution
• False Advertising
• False Designation of Origin Claims
The success of a business lies in its creativity and ability to innovate its products and services. It remains the responsibility of the creator of such unique ideas to protect them from being copied by competing business interests.
Intellectual property laws assist and enable you as a business or innovator to secure sole creative recognition of your product or service and reserve your rights, ensuring that you benefit from the hard work and time invested.
By ensuring appropriate intellectual property protection, the benefits are threefold:
• You Develop a Distinct Corporate Identity
• Saving Investment in Research and Development
• Protecting your Business Ideas, Products, or Services from Being Copied by Competitors
In order to determine your IP rights, we identify the kind of infringement which you face, the extent of damage, and the relevant jurisdiction. Our assistance may be required in a variety of instances, such as:
• You may seek to protect confidential information through your contractual obligations.
• Your staff may seek to own the IP developed during the term of their employment.
• You may face malicious threats from owners of the IP rights or parties may seek an injunction to stop illegal use of your intellectual property.
Defending search orders or against unjustified or groundless threats from patent trolls or entities after a quick settlement, we regularly advise clients on the most efficient way to protect their IP rights whether registered or otherwise. We are instructed by businesses and individuals while managing intellectual property portfolios, from registration to enforcement to ensure that your creation is protected from infringement.
