IP Registration and Prosecution

Our team of lawyers work with our clients to come up with strategies for registering, prosecuting and maintaining their portfolio of IP assets namely patent, trade mark, industrial design and copyright.

Our patent prosecution team comprises lawyers and paralegals who are trained in the law and science. We regularly advise and handle patent filings and prosecutions for local and foreign clients in a myriad of industries, including automotive, oil & gas, telecommunications, pharmaceutical, medical devices, agriculture and manufacturing. Our patent prosecution team also provides support to our IP litigation team in complex patent infringement and invalidation suits.
Trade Mark and Industrial Design
Our trademark and industrial design registration and prosecution team are highly-trained and skilled in conducting searches, preparing and filing applications, addressing objections and oppositions, as well as maintaining and managing the clients’ portfolio of trade marks and industrial designs. We work closely with the clients to understand their branding and sales directions to come up with bespoke filing and prosecution strategies in Malaysia and other countries around the world.
In the copyright realm, we advise clients on steps to take to preserve and assert their rights over their creations of a literary, artistic and musical nature, sound and video recordings. Our lawyers guide clients on the documentation required for the filing of copyright notifications with the Copyright Controller. In addition, we also advise and assist clients with agreements governing the use and commercialisation of their copyright works.
We provide cost effective solutions to our clients by taking on the role of their IP manager, providing specialised knowledge and experience in this area without the commitment of a permanent headcount. We also add value to the clients’ business organisation by leveraging off our experience garnered from handling IP litigation and enforcement matters to provide them with timely advice and to prevent pitfalls as they embark on their business ventures.
To give clients a seamless portfolio management experience for their local and foreign IP assets, we work closely with our associate firms in the region and many other countries worldwide.
