Our IP Law Services

Licensing and Franchising of IP Assets

We will help you deal with all matters related to the licensing and franchising of your IP assets, including the filing, registration, and protection of your patent, trademark, industrial design or geographical indication. 

We will provide you with the necessary information to comply with the licensing procedures of several regulatory bodies in the Philippines, including the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI), Department of Science and Technology (DOST), Department of Health (DOH), and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).  

Enforcement of IP Rights

Our IP lawyers are highly-skilled in devising strategies on how to protect your IP rights against infringers and counterfeiters. We will locate and verify their identity and illegal activities through both online and offline means. 

We will also work closely with the Intellectual Property Office of the Philippines (IPOPHL), Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), Department of Trade and Industry (DTI), and other agencies involved to examine the records filed by your infringers or counterfeiters. If there was no deliberate intent to infringe, we will take appropriate action to ensure such infringement will be discontinued. 

IP Litigation

We provide IP litigation services, representing clients before the IPOPHL, Regional Trial Courts, Court of Appeals, and the Supreme Court. 

We help clients take the best course of action to keep their IP rights recognized and protected to prevent infringement or misappropriation of the legal rights of their IP assets and/or inventions.
