For years, our intellectual property team has advised on a wide range of intellectual property issues. We mainly focus on topics related to trademark and copyright issues, including the use of copyrighted works on the internet, as well as on topics related to combating unfair competition and data privacy. We advise our clients in connection with both the acquisition of intellectual and/or industrial property rights, and the registration and protection thereof. We are highly experienced in drafting and negotiating copyright and trademark transfer and/or licence agreements, including software licence agreements. We also represent our clients in disputes concerning intellectual and/or industrial property rights.
We advise clients from different sectors, including the IT, automotive, biotechnology, energy, and food sectors, as well as internet portals, telecommunication providers, and publishing houses. We are also experienced in providing advisory services relating to intellectual property issues to sport clubs (in relation to the protection and use of the images of their players). In addition, we provide day-to-day advice to non-profit organisations.
With our in-depth experience of the key aspects of the intellectual property field, we are able to provide trusted support to clients even in respect of the most complex and complicated issues. Our intellectual property team also supports other practices of our firm such as M&A, private equity, capital markets, and litigation, which allows the firm to provide our clients comprehensive advice on complex domestic and cross-border transactions.
