Our IP litigation team understands our clients’ business, products, services and technology. We recommend and carry out litigation strategies that are tailor-made for each client. IP litigation matters are invariably demanding in terms of evidence presentation and being one of the largest IP litigation practices in Malaysia, we are fully equipped in terms of human and material resources to meet and address such demands with ease.
The team frequently acts in obtaining urgent orders for preserving assets and evidence via the Anton Piller search order.
Our IP enforcement team provides end-to-end solutions to clients who wish to enforce their statutory right to move the regulatory authorities to investigate and remove counterfeit products and copyright infringing works from the marketplace.
We conduct market surveillance to ascertain the locations at which infringing goods are offered for sale, and subsequently work with external investigation firms to obtain intelligence on the supply and distribution of infringing goods. We assist clients to lodge complaints with the relevant authorities and to conduct verification exercises during the investigations. Separately, we also advise and act for clients in parallel civil suits against the infringers.
Our IP enforcement team has acted for various clients in a range of products including fashion, footwear, food and beverage, infant and baby care products, pharmaceutical, household and kitchen appliances, automotive and fast-moving consumer goods.
