A patent is an exclusive right granted for an invention, which is a product or a process that provides, in general, a new way of doing something, or offers a new technical solution to a problem. To get a patent, technical information about the invention must be disclosed to the public in a patent application.


A trademark is a sign capable of distinguishing the goods or services of one enterprise from those of other enterprises. Trademarks are protected by intellectual property rights.


Our Patent Section is primarily responsible to advise our clients on their patent needs in our region. The scope of advice which we render in this respect varies from assessing the patentability of a particular invention, indicating the filing requirements in each given jurisdiction, up to explaining the extent of protection available and

recommending the appropriate course of action in the event of an infringement of a patent right.


Copyright (or author’s right) is a legal term used to describe the rights that creators have over their literary and artistic works. Works covered by copyright range from books, music, paintings, sculpture, and films, to computer programs, databases, advertisements, maps, and technical drawings.
