Bech-Bruun samarbejde

Beskyttelse, udnyttelse og håndhævelse af IP-rettigheder er vigtigere end nogensinde. Det omfatter alle IP-rettigheder – designs, domænenavne, forretningshemmeligheder, ophavsrettigheder, patenter og brugsmodeller, varemærker mv. IP-rettigheder står globalt for en stigende del af BNP, og den teknologiske udvikling øger mulighederne for kommercialisering af IP-rettigheder, men stiller samtidig store krav til strategi, beskyttelse og håndhævelse.

Vi har indgående viden om alle forhold vedrørende IP-rettigheder og samtidig en dyb kommerciel forståelse af de enkelte branchers behov.

Vi rådgiver danske og udenlandske virksomheder inden for alle forhold vedrørende IP-rettigheder. Vores klienter er både små og store danske og internationale virksomheder fra alle brancher, herunder elektronik, medier, mekanik, fashion, lægemidler samt informations- og bioteknologi.

Vi rådgiver blandt andet om:

  • Registrering/prosecution af varemærker og designs
  • Kommercialisering af IP-rettigheder, herunder licensering og salg samt andre kommercielle aftaler vedrørende udnyttelse af IP-rettigheder
  • Produktefterligninger
  • Beskyttelse af forretningshemmeligheder
  • Håndhævelse af IP-rettigheder
  • Bevissikring
  • Forbuds- og retssager
  • Toldprogrammer vedrørende suspension af counterfeit-produkter.

Vi kan levere den bedst mulige rådgivning – også uden for Danmark, da vi samarbejder med et globalt netværk af advokatvirksomheder, der kan bistå, når vores klienter har behov for rådgivning om udenlandske forhold. 

For at sikre optimal rådgivning arbejder vi selvfølgelig også tæt sammen med vores kollegaer inden for relevante områder, blandt andet Life Science, M&A & Selskabsforhold, Media & Entertainment samt It & Digitalisering.
