Intellectual Property

Irrespective whether IP forms the core business of a company (e.g., development or exploitation of IP rights in innovations or copyright protected matter), or has more accessory functions (e.g., trademarks), it needs to be well looked after from the very beginning of an IP right existence and throughout its lifecycle, by a careful and regular analysis of the potential risks that may affect it and by taking the appropriate and timely measures for protection.
