We advise on all aspects of Intellectual Property law: filing for patent, design and trademark protection, negotiating license agreements and consequently putting an end to infringements.

Along with our network of partner law firms, which has grown over 50 years, we are supervising and representing patent, trademark and design cases in more than 100 countries. English is our common language when dealing with highly complex technical and legal issues.

All of our attorneys have worked in English speaking countries for a substantial period of time.
