Services

The firm can be said to be one of the pioneers among law fims in Malaysia in respect of Intellectual Property (“IP”) law practice. Our reputation has been built on the foundations of our considerable experience in advising on trade marks, patents, copyright, designs, anti­-counterfeiting, domain names, franchising, licensing, litigation involving IP issues, portfolio management and technology. 


Examples of the work that we do:
 
  • Co-ordination on behalf of local clients for the protection and enforcement of their IP rights (“IPR”) in Malaysia and abroad

  • Filing, both in Malaysia and overseas, of applications for the registration of trade marks, patents, utility innovations and industrial designs and the subsequent prosecution and monitoring of these applications. In this connection, we work with our network of foreign associate firms in respect of registrations overseas; correspondingly, we file and monitor applications in Malaysia on behalf of those firms’ clients.

  • Enforcement of IPR, whether through civil proceedings or by facilitating criminal prosecutions

  • Monitoring of government gazettes for timely lodgment of opposition proceedings against infringers

  • Public policy work such as lobbying for change of laws and procedures with the relevant governmental agencies

  • Implementation of anti-piracy / anti-counterfeiting programmes for clients

  • Registration of domain names on behalf of clients with the Malaysian Network Information Centre (“MYNIC“) for the registration of country code Top Level Domain (.my)

  • The implementation of educational and marketing campaigns involving IPR for clients

  • The commercial exploitation of IPR such as the preparation of licence agreements, franchise agreements and the registration of franchiseswith the relevant governmental authority
Our firm-­wide experience and knowledge in diverse industries have equipped us with the relevant know­how in providing our clients with sound, creative and comprehensive advice for the protection and enforcement of their IPR. We strongly believe in a pro­active and aggressive approach but may tailor such an approach according to our clients’ internal policies. We also believe in dealing with issues in a “macro” way by identifying the clients’ objectives and needs. The IP Practice Group often works with other practice groups in the firm, for example, assisting the Corporate & Commercial Practice Group to conduct an IP due diligence exercise for a merger & acquisition transaction, or working with litigators from the Dispute Resolution Practice Group to obtain an injunction from the Courts against an infringer of our client’s IPR. The fact that we are a full­-service commercial firm means that clients have the benefit of seamless integrated legal advice and representation.

Our clients range from multi­nationals to small business enterprises and individuals across a wide spectrum of sectors including consumer goods, food and beverage, financial services, medical services, automobile industries, construction and engineering, manufacturing, entertainment, computers and technology.
