Intellectual Property

Dr Egon Engin-Deniz is a partner in the firm and has been with CMS since 1991. He leads the intellectual property and media teams at CMS in Vienna. For several years he was IP practice head of the pan-European IP team at CMS.

He has extensive experience in contentious and non-contentious trademark, domain and patent law as well as in copyright issues, including conditional access law, distribution and unfair competition matters. His team specialises in pursuing product piracy cases and the investigation of parallel imports. Egon Engin-Deniz is a recognised expert in the coordination of complex multi-jurisdiction litigation and in the field of licensing. Together with his team, he advises leading international and Austrian clients across a wide range of industry sectors, with a focus on pharmaceutical and medical device companies, agro sciences, biotechnology, media companies as well as companies from the IT and consumer products sectors.

Equally important as his intensive involvement in litigation activities are the strategic "cradle to grave" advisory services he provides to companies, starting from the choice of names and portfolio management to trademark, patents and licensing strategies.

Up until 2008, Egon Engin-Deniz was state commissioner for the Austrian collecting societies OeSTIG und LSG.
