Intellectual Property

Commercially savvy clients do not underestimate the overall value that intellectual property assets represent to their business, or the need to protect these assets against unauthorized use, especially in a climate dominated by electronic and internet communications. Members who practice in this area offer a wealth of experience in disputes relating to copyright, industrial designs, patents, trademark infringement, passing off, confidential information and trade secrets.
