Intellectual Property

Defending intellectual property rights (IPRs) such as copyrights, patents, trademarks and designs has an increasing importance for companies of all sizes and industries. IPRs are intangible assets which are essential for sustainable growth and competitive challenges.

Infringements of IP occur on a daily basis and they are not bound to national borders. Efficient IPR protection requires manpower as well as an aggressive legal expertise.

It is vital to recognize and fight IP infringements at an early stage. Moreover, it is important to collect, document, and analyze evidence which complies with relevant legal standards and judicial requirements.

A solid and stable chain of evidence is the key to both successful litigation and effective arbitration.
