Intellectual Property Law Practice Group

Contact Atty. Celso L. Cruz

With extensive contacts in North America, Europe and Japan, our Intellectual Property Law Group is familiar with international treaties for the protection of intellectual property rights and Philippine intellectual property laws. Our work in this area includes:

a. all types of intellectual property registrations and applications – for patent, trademark, trade name, service marks and copyright; by special arrangement, we can handle the preparation of patent claims and application documents (the specification, claim, abstract and drawings);

b. original actions for protection and enforcement of intellectual property rights, such as Opposition and Cancellation of Registration, and Interference actions, and suits for infringement and unfair competition, whether filed in the Philippine Intellectual Property Office, the Regional Trial Court or the Department of Trade and Industry’s Bureau of Legal Affairs, and appellate proceedings in the Court of Appeals and the Supreme Court;

c. preparation and review of technology transfer agreements, as well as other forms of licensing and assignments of intellectual property rights.

Our firm’s IP department corresponds with several hundred patent attorneys all over the world, as well as with the patent departments of major corporations. We also advise Philippine and non-Philippine clients about the requirements of Philippine intellectual property laws, and have both initiated and defended against IPR enforcement actions.
