Hvordan kan vi hjælpe?
Vi rådgiver både mindre iværksættervirksomheder og multinationale koncerner om at stifte og beskytte varemærkerettigheder, domænenavne og design, ligesom vi rådgiver om alle juridiske aspekter inden for håndtering af IPR-porteføljer.

Registrering og beskyttelse af varemærker og rettigheder går tit på tværs af landegrænser – og det samme gør behovet for juridisk hjælp. Vi har et stort internationalt netværk af specialiserede jurister, som vi kan trække på, når vores klienter brug for det.

Vi tilbyder desuden elektronisk overvågning af varemærker og domænenavne, så vi hurtigt og effektivt kan gribe ind, hvis nogen forsøger at registrere varemærker, der ligger mistænkeligt tæt op ad vores klienters. Har du spørgsmål til programmet, er du velkommen til at kontakte Claus Barrett Christiansen.

Vi fører et stort antal fogedforbudssager, bevissikringssager og krænkelses- og gyldighedssager om varemærker og design. Derudover fører vi mange klagesager ved Klagenævnet for Domænenavne og internationale klagenævn.

Udfordringer på området
I dag er forskning, viden og stærke brands nogle af de vigtigste faktorer for vækst og konkurrenceevne. Derfor har virksomheder et stort behov for at beskytte deres produkter og for hurtigt at stoppe eventuelle krænkelser af immaterielle rettigheder. Det afspejles blandt andet i antallet af registrerede varemærker, som aldrig har været større end nu.

-  Intellectual Property

Danish law firm Bech-Bruun has a very strong team of experts who deal with IP transactions and contentious IP matters. It also has a filing and prosecution practice headed up by IP Star Claus Barrett Christiansen, who is singled out for praise. According to one commentator, Christiansen possesses "all the virtues an IP litigator needs". "Claus is their best name for trade mark and copyright work," says another. "He's been top notch when I've litigated against him," one rival testifies.

For copyright, the team can call on Peer Petersen. Other partners who can support in soft IP work include IT specialist Arly Carlquist, Mikkel Friis Rossa, Thomas Munk Rasmussen and Niels Andersen.

One client says the team provides "high quality and timely" advice "at a reasonable cost". The firm represented Rockwool International before the Danish Supreme Court in a landmark dispute on comparative advertising. Other clients include Sony, MTG (TV3), Danish Football Association, Elvis Presley Enterprises and Fender.

International player Bech-Bruun holds pride of place in the upper echelons of the Danish market. More than 30,000 domestic and global trademarks are adroitly managed by a host of top strategists, supported by hard-hitting contentious aces; while an expanding China desk is cementing its profile in the Far East.

Renaissance man Claus Barrett Christiansen is a magnet for new business and has his eye trained firmly on East Asia as a member of the China desk. “His broad experience stands out – he is really with it in both litigation and prosecution. He has bags of strategic know-how and brings that into the courtroom.“
