Protection of intellectual property rights

“Uniqueness and individuality is an essential part of success”

 

In the modern world, the value of the results of creative labor is constantly growing. Their legal protection is a guarantee of preservation and development of successful business. In 2010, we appreciated the entire potential of this category of cases and tried the complexity of the process related to protection of intellectual property rights in court. Since then, we have been diligently working and honing our skills in court battles.

Respect for intellectual property rights is not only a civil law duty. It includes the requirements of customs legislation and legislation on fair competition as well as the criminal legal aspect. The many-sided nature of intellectual property rights becomes especially obvious at the stage of contractual work related to disposal of property rights. The specifics of the subject of contract and variability of legal techniques require really qualified work on this category of contracts.
