Our intellectual property team in Singapore advises clients across a wide range of sectors across the South East Asia region in protecting, commercialising, licensing and enforcing their IP rights, whether in the form of patents, trademarks, designs, copyright, trade secrets or know-how.
We assist clients with defending and taking action against offenders in trademark infringement and passing-off claims as well as in patent, design and copyright litigation. Our lawyers have advised on some of the most sophisticated IP litigation cases and have secured landmark decisions helping to shape the legal developments of IP laws.
We can work closely with you to navigate the complex process of prosecuting your IP rights across multiple jurisdictions. We have an advance system that enables us to manage the filing and registration of large trademark, design and patent portfolios in a timely and cost-effective manner.
Through our international network and relationships across the region, we are able to undertake effective IP enforcement programmes against counterfeiters of good circulated in the region, particularly across South East Asia. We work closely with local investigators, enforcement authorities and customs officials to execute major enforcement actions, and we are able to execute raids against multiple targets across the region.
Our experience extends beyond the technical knowledge of IP as our team is equipped with the commercial and industry knowledge in drafting, negotiating and advising on licensing or franchising deals and transactional agreements surrounding corporate acquisitions, joint ventures and strategic business activities.
