INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY ISSUES
Intellectual Property Rights (IPRs) are at the heart of what many of our clients do. IPRs can be a valuable means to protect revenue as well as being a potential source of income; they can be an effective way of developing and growing a business and often open new markets and accelerate growth.
Ecomlex lawyers act as business advisers and regularly work with clients to ensure that they are able to exploit and protect their IPRs. We have helped many businesses in a variety of sectors, including technology, media and telecoms, hotels and leisure, life sciences and finance with all manner of transactional and strategic advice relating to intellectual property. Members of the Ecomlex network are able to assist in matters ranging from the protection of IPRs and consolidation of IPR portfolios, to the enforcement of IP rights through litigation and other dispute resolution forums.
In particular, our members have multi-jurisdictional experience in areas such as the creation and management of global anti-counterfeiting programmes; franchising and licensing; promotions, marketing and sponsorship; the clearance, prosecution, renewal and litigation of brands and trade marks; and online infringement.
The Ecomlex network also includes patent lawyers able to provide commercial, focussed advice to clients seeking to identify, capture, protect and exploit their innovations. Our members assist on issues ranging from developing and implementing international patent litigation strategies, innovation audits and patent validity, to patent portfolio management, tax and transfer pricing and competition issues.
