Protecting your Intellectual Property Assets
Our IP team creates, develops, manages and maintains our clients' IP portfolios and provides pragmatic advice on the best strategies for IP rights enforcement. We have the necessary experience to be able to properly evaluate the suitability of trademark, design and patent protection, and are equipped to carry out necessary searches. We regularly participate in due diligence procedures in order to identify and evaluate IP assets and anticipate the possible risks.

Such work includes surveillance of borders and dialogue with customs authorities, as well as preparation and filing of requests for the cancellation of imports in case of IP rights infringement. We also have extensive experience in IP-related disputes.
