Technology and Innovation

In today’s knowledge-based society, an organisation’s intellectual property constitutes an important strategic and financial resource. Along with its employees’ experience and expertise, these intangible assets are the basis for innovation and value creation in any organisation.

Our lawyers provide assistance to a wide range of knowledge-based companies, helping them to protect, commercialise and enforce their intellectual property rights (IPR), such as patents, trademarks, company names, domain names, designs, copyright protected material and trade secrets.

We believe that managing IPR is getting more and more important in the digital world. Our mission is to assist our clients with all aspect of their strategy for managing IPR.
