Intellectual Property Law
Intellectual property rights are important assets for a company, and the value of intellectual property rights is often of great importance in relation to acquisition and sale of companies – also in terms of tax and employment.
Our team provides a complete range of Intellectual Property (IP) services. We apply our technical skills in IP to provide the best strategic advice to companies operating in industries as diverse as the pharmaceutical, manufacturing, publishing, food, media, financial services, airline, life sciences, chemistry, electronics, computer engineering, mining and engineering sectors.
Our team is able to register a range of IP rights and additional support is provided through our well-established network of professional contacts, such as trade mark and patent attorneys, who can be consulted should the need arise.
ESK attorneys focus on leveraging their clients’ intellectual property to help them achieve success in the marketplace. Our IP lawyers provide counsel on the most efficacious methods of establishing and developing IP holdings and protecting IP rights so clients can realize the most value from those assets.
From patents to trademarks and copyrights to licensing and technology transfers to IP audits and IP asset due diligence, our attorneys offer clients portfolio management and strategic advice on obtaining and protecting valuable intellectual property.
The firm’s IP lawyers represent clients ranging from large multinational corporations to individual inventors, authors and owners of creative works. Our IP team includes highly trained attorneys with multiple technical degrees, former corporate patent and trademark counsel and professors of IP law.
A sampling of matters the ESK IP team handles includes pharmaceuticals, consumer products (particularly in the food and home and personal care categories), entertainment, media, franchising, distribution, trade secret matters and licensing projects. Our IP attorneys also assist clients in disputes regarding rights of privacy and publicity, antitrust and Internet and e-commerce issues.
Our team is composed of highly skilled and versatile lawyers who combine practical experience and academic knowledge of their field. Most of our practitioners have worked in different professional environments, often outside their home jurisdiction.
