Robertsons’ Intellectual Property Department advises its clients across a broad range of manufacturing and service industries in relation to their industrial and intellectual property needs.
For start-ups and new brands, we work with our clients and correspondent firms throughout the world in establishing strategies to sufficiently protect their trademarks in as cost- effective manner as possible.
We also advise on and assist clients with the registration of patents and designs, as well as establishing and protecting the copyright of their artistic works. In particular, we work with our corporate clients in ensuring that valuable intellectual property created in the course of their business are not subject to third party claims.
We have considerable experience representing manufacturers, head-licensees and distributors in a wide variety of licensing arrangements throughout the region, with particular emphasis on the intellectual property aspects of those arrangements.
We also work together with our Private Equity & Commercial Department to provide due diligence services on the intellectual property implications of acquisitions in such areas as the compliance of IT system licensing in target companies.
In conjunction with our Criminal and Commercial Crime Department, we act in more serious customs and excise cases involving infringing and counterfeit goods.
Our team also acts for clients in asserting and defending intellectual property rights including domain names and in Trade Mark opposition proceedings both in the territory and, in conjunction with our correspondent firms, throughout the world.
