As intellectual property becomes increasingly valuable to businesses, it becomes even more important to have effective legal representation in intellectual property matters. Our firm has an excellent track record in successfully enforcing our clients’ intellectual property rights, as well as in defending our clients against baseless claims. Unlike other Philippine firms, all IP litigation cases is handled by our Intellectual Property Department and not by the general litigation department. The complexity of IP litigation requires the specialized knowledge and expertise of seasoned intellectual property litigators. Our IP litigators have the extensive experience and expertise required to successfully represent clients in a wide variety of patent, trademark and copyright cases.
Our IP lawyers have successfully argued and won Supreme Court cases for our clients, including the following landmark IP decisions:
- Declaring the first internationally well-known markin the Philippines;
- Upholding the jurisdiction of the Intellectual Property Office of the Philippines (IPOPHL) over administrative cases for unfair competition and infringement;
- Confirming the abandonment of a patent application on the ground of public interest; and
- Clarifying that the Special IP Rules of Procedure do not prohibit the filing of a demurrer to evidence in patent infringement cases.
