Intellectual Property

Portugal

This area comprises patents, models, trademarks, copyright and other Intellectual Property rights. We are focused on the national and international registration of those rights, as well as on day-to-day assistance to our clients, what implies a pro-active, surveillance and reactive role on our team’s side.

We represent our clients before courts and other authorities to protect their intellectual property rights, rather often critical for the success of their business.

We also regularly handle due diligence and assessment of intellectual property assets of companies, strategic consultancy.

CMS Rui Pena & Arnaut is one of the leading law firms in intellectual property.
