Our Intellectual Property Group has a rich level of experience in relation to intellectual property law, copyrights, trade marks and patents, licensing, technology transfer and research and development agreements. We continue to invest in building our range of skills and resources to meet the specialist needs of our clients.
Our advisory IP practice includes a full range of trade mark search, clearance, registration and prosecution services. Our clients range from domestic private companies, whom we counsel in relation to the planning and execution of their intellectual property protection, brand management and commercialisation strategies, to public bodies, such as third level institutions seeking to enter into high value collaborative research projects. We have extensive experience working on IP matters with global technology and life sciences companies and have a broad client base across the entertainment industry, including film, games, multimedia and music. We have worked with many international clients who have chosen Ireland as an innovation centre from where they can build their research and development capacity and manage their European and worldwide IP portfolios effectively and tax efficiently.
Our advisory and litigation practices extend across the full ambit of intellectual property rights including:
- Trade Marks and Passing Off/Unfair Competition
- Unregistered IP
- Confidential Information/Trade Secrets
- IP Litigation
- Alternative Dispute Resolution
- Tax Effective IP Structures
- IP Disputes and Litigation
- Innovation and Research Collaborations
We work closely with our colleagues in our Litigation, Dispute Resolutions and Investigations Group in relation to contentious intellectual property matters and in our Tax and Corporate and M&A groups in relation to commercialisation of intellectual property and implementation of cost effective IP structures.
