Intellectual Property

Our IP practice group puts proven expertise at our clients’ disposal for the enforcement and exploitation of their intellectual property. For years, our team has provided effective representation in IP protection and in potential or actual disputes, contracting, transactions and litigation.

On the menu to the right you will find a list of IP specialisms we provide leading companies, multinationals, government agencies and non-government organisations. The sectors are just as diverse comprising finance, life sciences, biotech, chemistry, technology, consumer goods, food, retail, luxury products, publishers and the entertainment industry.

Our IP specialists have decades of domestic and cross-border experience in IP law and have a deep understanding of the business implications of related issues in particular, the transfer of knowledge, trade secrets and protection of know-how. They also work closely in transactions with other practice groups such as TMT, tax, EU competition, employment, criminal law, capital markets, and our M&A practice.

From an international perspective, we have special expertise in multi-jurisdictional procedures where important IP rights form the subject matter of a dispute in parallel proceedings in various countries. In such cases we draw on long-standing relationships with top tier IP firms around the world.
