Domains are some of the most valuable intellectual property assets that companies own, and are increasingly important for brand awareness and image.
In a world where online commerce is becoming more and more popular, a company's online profile and brand goodwill must be safeguarded from cybersquatters and other unscrupulous third parties that can hurt your business interests on the internet. Many companies choose to constantly monitor the web and make sure that their brand name is not being exploited.
Our team of specialists on IP law gives advice on disputes relating to intellectual property rights and copyright by negotiating agreements and assist in dispute resolution.
