Intellectual PropertyIntellectual Property

One of the most significant aspects of safeguarding the competitiveness and even the existence of an organisation is the protection of intellectual property rights. Our intellectual property team has substantial expertise and experience in enforcing, protecting and helping to manage intellectual property assets in Cyprus, the EU and worldwide.

The firm has experience and is well placed to advise and handle legal matters in relation to all aspects of intellectual property law, including, inter alia, acquisition and licensing; trademarks and tradenames; copyright rights; patents and technology; internet and domain names. We are proud to count some of the largest multinational organisations, financial institutions and HNWI whom we advise on an impressive variety of IP matters (both domestic and international cross border); at the same time, we have also been involved in some of the most high profile deals and cases which have ever been carried in Cyprus or which involve Cyprus structures, as far as the IP sector is concerned.

It is worth mentioning that Cyprus has harmonised national law with the EU law and at the same time, has also ratified the most important IP related treaties. Similarly with other areas such as tax, the country provides a consistent and attractive legal regime as far as IP law is concerned.

Amongst others, the team is highly competent to handle, assist and provide assistance regarding:

  • Advice on the acquisition, registration and protection of all intellectual property;
  • IP Box Regime;
  • General advice but also representation in legal proceedings and related assistance;
  • Registration and renewal and maintenance of trademarks in Cyprus and EU;
  • Advice and legal representation in regards to the enforcement of IP rights on civil proceedings and criminal liability, advice on patent, trademark, copyright civil proceedings, cease and desist letter; advice on passing-off actions; advice on any EU aspects of the IP law; handle proceedings related to IP infringement (the firm has vast experience on injunctive reliefs); online enforcement of IP infringement;
