Intellectual property rights may be jointly owned.

Such co-ownership on a patent application or registration is subject to a special regime, deviating from the common law of undivided ownership.

On the other hand, co-ownership of trademarks or designs is not subject to specific rules and is subject to the rules governing undivided ownership.

 

We work with our clients in order to cover all key considerations specific to their circumstances and ensure optimal management and valuation of their intellectual property rights.
