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.
