We protect your inventions.

We speak your language.

Globalization has steadily raised the importance for industrial enterprises to protect intellectual property by integrating industrial property rights into their corporate strategy and management. Consequently, industrial property rights have become a key instrument in this competitive world.

Innovation and life cycles have been shrinking for all kinds of products, giving rise to new challenges on how to develop and implement strategies to protect intellectual property. The facets of defending and enforcing one’s IP rights, especially from the capital-creation standpoint, have also mushroomed.

We function as your partner, offering service-oriented advice in all fields of industrial property rights, built on the principles of integrated management of IP rights.

Our prime directive is to deliver top-quality work, efficiently and fully committed to address your unique needs.

We have a wealth of experience in commercializing the application of industrial property rights, founded on many years of involvement in diverse professional roles in the business world. Our core expertise lies in devising strategies tailored to your business model to protect your intellectual property, applying for and defending your IP rights, enforcing these in or out of court, as well as evaluating and commercializing your IP rights and respective portfolios.
