Intellectual Property

Managing and protecting intellectual property has become increasingly complex for global companies, which often have huge IP portfolios and operations in multiple jurisdictions with varied IP laws and levels of enforcement. Rapid technological advancements have enabled infringers to become more sophisticated, and the rise of intellectual property as the main driver of mergers and acquisitions has made developing strategies to protect these assets even more important.

We have helped the leading multinational companies in all aspects of the acquisition, protection, enforcement, and exploitation of their IP rights. We cover the full scope of IP services in more jurisdictions than any other firm. Our global coverage, high-quality work, and commitment to client service are reflected in the recognition we receive within the legal industry.

With expertise in the automotive, luxury and fashion, fast-moving consumer goods, financial services, technology, media and entertainment, manufacturing, and pharmaceuticals, life sciences and healthcare industries, we advise clients on brand management, brand enforcement, patent litigation, patent prosecution, copyright, IP litigation, trade secrets, IP transactions, tax and IP advisory, and marketing, advertising and promotions. Based on our long experience in the field, we approach IP management as a strategic issue and have developed the people, processes, and technologies to serve as a one-stop shop for protecting the IP assets of global businesses.
