IP Disputes & Regulatory Advice

Our intellectual property litigation practice encompasses patent, trademark, design
right, utility model, domain name and copyright disputes as well as conflicts relating
to the unfair business practices. In the technology field, we represent clients in the disputes
relating to ICT, outsourcing and high-tech which often have a special dimension of the intellec-tual property.

Our litigation expertise involves all aspects of a dispute, from preliminary injunctions to cases on merits and enforcement. We are fully equipped to handle arbitration and administrative
proceedings.

In addition to the disputes, we advise our clients in a variety of regulatory matters concerning pharmaceuticals, medical technology, ICT, electronics, chemicals, food and beverage industries.

By understanding the business objectives behind IP rights and why they need protection, we manage the proceedings and related costs within set parameters. We can call on the expertise of our colleagues in other practice groups in issues of industry-specific business practices and substantive law related to corporate crimes and government enforcement.
