Protecting Your Most Valuable Asset

The protection and defense of your idea, innovation, invention or business process in the form of copyrights, patents and trade secrets is crucial to your success as an artist, business owner, entrepreneur, or executive.

We offer a full spectrum of intellectual property services, including:

IP Litigation: When clients are facing or initiating litigation, we begin by developing a sound strategy, taking business goals and objectives into consideration. We consider an array of options such as trial, mediation and arbitration and work closely with clients to determine the best plan of action.

Our intellectual property litigation lawyers represent clients ranging from large businesses to start-up and individual inventors on issues such as patents, trademarks, trade secrets, licensing, false advertising etc.

 

Patents: We represent our clients in acquiring, enforcing, and licensing patents in the United Arab Emirates. The right conferred by a patent grant is the right to exclude others from making, using, offering for sale, selling or importing the invention into the United Arab Emirates.

Once a patent has been granted, the patent owner has the legal authority to exclude others from making, using, or selling the claimed invention in a particular country without consent, for a fixed period of time. Our lawyers prepare, file, and prosecute domestic and foreign utilities and design patent applications as well as assist clients by helping them capitalize on their patent rights by licensing and enforcing the patents.

 

Licensing: A licensing agreement determines the rights and responsibilities of the licensor and licensee, the terms, compensation and whether the license is for exclusive or non-exclusive use.

While the transfer of intellectual property rights, delivers many opportunities, it can also bring the risks such as breach. Whether selling or obtaining a license, we work closely with clients on the plenty of strategic considerations involved in negotiating, drafting and enforcing an agreement that maximizes both the asset’s value and protection provided.
