The importance of Cyprus as an international commercial centre has greatly increased following the accession of the island to the European Union. There is a corresponding increase in the need to protect intellectual property rights and in particular matters relating to copyright, patents and trademarks in Cyprus.
We undertake the registration of trade marks, trade names, design names and patents in Cyprus as well as registering trademarks and designs (Community Trademark) at the European Trademark Office in the European Union.
Likewise the protection of intellectual property plays an increasingly important part of business life. Our firm can advise on the protection of copyrights, designs, inventions, trade marks, know how and other propietary information and products. We also handle litigation concerning the prevention of infringement of copyrights and other intellectual property rights.
When conflict arises concerning intellectual property and litigation cannot be avoided, our firm’s litigation experience and capabilities in the area of intellectual property and business tort law permit it us to effectively handle litigation and administrative proceedings in areas including:
- Patent infringement
- Patent interferences
- Trademark and service mark infringement
