Intellectual Property

Your ideas. Your innovations. Your brand. Our IP practice understands that these assets make your business unique, and we know how to help you protect them. Whether the goal is protecting IP assets, forming a venture, securing capital, developing technology, issuing securities, licensing IP rights or making acquisitions, our IP team stands ready to offer cohesive and comprehensive guidance. We offer advisory services across the life cycle of IP assets ― from development to commercialization, and licensing through to maturity.

It is essential to be aware of your intellectual property rights and the regulator to approach for the license you actually require, how to negotiate adequate terms of use, and where to start with effective rights management. This is what we do for you at Advocaat. No matter your business or sector, be it in the IT, entertainment, telecoms, luxury goods, education, banking, finance, energy, transport, literary industries, our IP experience can be your asset. Our services span across IP licensing and transactions, strategic counselling, patent, trademark, industrial design and copyright registrations.
