Intellectual property

About this practice area

We have been effectively advising Clients on intellectual and industrial property law for over a decade and can truly call ourselves the leader in this field.

We work with Clients from Poland and elsewhere, providing them with comprehensive assistance at every stage of the proceedings. Where additional expertise is required, we make sure that Clients receive the support they need. In court proceedings we cooperate, for example, with experts in industrial property rights valuation, design, technological solutions, and sociology, as well as with consumer research organizations and PR agencies.

Not only do we help our Clients obtain protection of specific industrial property rights in Poland and worldwide, but we also represent them in all disputes. They can count on us for professional representation in judicial and administrative proceedings in Poland and elsewhere. We take care of all the formalities, and provide advice and assist quickly whenever a rapid response is needed.

Industrial and intellectual property law is one of our key practice areas. We know what to do and how to do it.

  • We represent Clients in administrative and judicial proceedings concerning the registration and maintenance of industrial property rights and conflicts between such rights in Poland and worldwide (including representation before the European Union Intellectual Property Office).
