Nowadays, intellectual property occupies a leading role in the world economy, and in business life in general. Trademarks, patents, copyrights, designs, utility models, etc are fundamental to any company and can be extremely profit maximizing, if managed well, following the specialized advice that we can offer.
Our practice could be categorized in the following four sectors: brand protection, transactions and licensing, advisory and strategy and dispute resolution.
Our lawyers provide tailor made advice and strategies from filing applications for national, community or international registrations to managing them (licensing, technology transfer, franchising) and defending these rights in cases of infringement, piracy, counterfeiting or parallel importation. Since we consider intellectual property management of strategic importance, we combine our broad industry experience along with our passion for quality of work to maximize the commercial value of our clients’ assets. Our talented lawyers created and managed successfully the trademark portfolio of companies such as CHIPITA INTERNATIONAL Group of Companies, RICARDO INTERNET HELLAS M.EPE and DYNAMIC LIFE S.A. in more than 30 countries.
We also provide advice on agreements that deal either exclusively with intellectual property rights or intellectual property rights in the wider context of larger commercial transactions, such as joint ventures. In this context, we have negotiated and concluded the Joint Venture agreements between CHIPITA INTERNATIONAL S.A. and GLOBAL FINANCE, DELTA, OLAYAN GROUP, COMMERCIAL CAPITAL in Bulgaria, Poland, Romania and Russia, as well as the Joint Venture Agreements between CHIPITA INTERNATIONAL S.A. and PEPSICO in South America.
We have also drafted Trademark License Agreements with NINTENDO for the production and marketing of POKEMON Products.
