Our dedicated team of in-house counsel is equipped to provide comprehensive preliminary and pre-litigation consultancy to clients when they face legal IP issues. Wherever possible, we believe in seeking to amicably resolve any dispute through negotiation with the adverse party. Such resolution benefits the clients as it avoids the expense, delay and uncertainty of a court action.
However if legal action is unavoidable, we collaborate with our expert external counsel (specialist IP litigators) in addressing contentious issues. We take an active role in the entire litigation process by coordinating matters between our external counsel and clients to maximise a favourable outcome for the latter.
Our collaboration with our external counsel extends to the application of Trade Description Orders (TDO) and working closely with the authorities in the enforcement of IP rights. This includes raid and seizure conducted at business premises that have been identified to be infringing the clients’ IP rights.
