Intellectual Property

AURUM’s intellectual property practice combines our team’s strong expertise in this field with the flexibility and deep focus of a boutique law firm. We provide comprehensive and innovative advice on all intellectual property matters, including the protection of technology and product, brand and domain protection, patent filings and litigation, technology transfer and licensing, IP audits and IP asset due diligence, copyright, trademark and trade secret protection and litigation. 

Almost every deal in the modern digital economy touches intellectual property in some way, and, more often, involves a range of matters pertaining to IP. While working on a transaction, our lawyers identify the intellectual property issues that must be addressed and then properly structure the deal in terms of the IP rights. An important point is that the transaction must be structured and the contract must be drafted in conformity with the laws of those jurisdictions where the parties might have to enforce the terms thereof – otherwise the party may be unable to rely on the provisions of the contract and subsequently unable to obtain legal protection for the intellectual property.

International protection for intellectual property

As the majority of our clients are international businesses having a presence in multiple countries, our IP professionals constantly work with clients on structuring multi-jurisdictional and cross-border IP transactions, developing international IP holding structures and protecting intellectual property rights in different jurisdictions around the globe.

Combating counterfeit products (anti-counterfeiting) 

AURUM has extensive experience in combating counterfeiting. We regularly represent and act as an ongoing advisor to global pharmaceutical and FMCG brands in multiple matters relating to the counterfeiting.

Our professionals regularly advise brand owners on counterfeit issues in multiple industries. We help our clients protect their business reputation and goodwill, as well as address any other challenges arising from counterfeiting. Attorneys at AURUM further advise the clients on matters pertaining to import regulations, raising copyright, and other IP enforcement rights at the borders against counterfeit goods.
