    Innovation and Intellectual Property

    Innovation and the protection of innovation by Intellectual Property robustly increase the value of your business. Strong IP rights are the crown jewels of intangibles. And not only are they a valuable asset for your company but IP rights also are key in getting a head start and staying ahead on competition. The Intellectual Property team helps to protect (the exploitation of) innovations, technology, brands and general content.

    We assist in all phases of protecting, registering, exploiting, advertising and – if necessary – enforcing IP rights. And we are sparring partner in getting the best structure for protecting technology within (sometimes complex) organizations.

    Broad Intellectual Property practice

    We are well equipped to assist our clients with all intellectual property related issues and challenges. The practice has a strong focus on traditional 'soft' IP matters, for instance regarding trademarks, tradenames, copyrights, designs and domain names, and is frequently engaged in matters regarding patents, know-how and life sciences.

    The team handles a wide range of IP matters in core areas, such as: retail, media, technology, entertainment and sports, commercial communications, labelling and all sorts of advertising and online communications via internet.

    Our team has a proven ability to act exceptionally quickly, including in initiating or defending litigation matters, whenever necessary. This is especially convenient in cases concerning counterfeit or (undesired) media attention or libel, where timing usually is of the essence.
