Trade Marks

Our intellectual property team is recognised in the IP Stars 2023 ranking

The dynamic development of technology makes the protection of trademarks, patents and utility models a business priority and a powerful source of competitive advantage for any business. And its absence, in the long or short term, can have very serious consequences. The mission of our intellectual and industrial property team is therefore not only to provide clients with the most effective protection and to advise them on how to maximise it, but also to systemically educate the market about IP. This is one of the reasons for our recognition in this year’s IP Stars 2023 ranking.

We are among the intellectual property stars

Karolina Marciniszyn and Tomasz Szambelan from the Intellectual and Industrial Property Practice have just been recommended in the IP Stars 2023 ranking in the following categories:

  • Trade mark disputes
  • Trade mark prosecution

These are new areas of recognition, as Trade mark contentious was previously the only category in the IP Stars ranking.

The new categories reflect the growing importance of trademark protection issues in litigation, e.g. in M&A transactions involving the transfer of intellectual property rights or copyright.

An experienced team

As a reminder, our IP team have recently won a number of high-profile trademark infringement cases for businesses operating in the pharmaceutical, media and FMCG sectors, obtaining favourable verdicts in advertising disputes (regarding false advertising) and in trademark cancellation proceedings before the Patent Office of the Republic of Poland.

The team also have a strong domain and UDRP practice, including domain name negotiation, recovery and litigation.

We also deal with the full range of patent, trade mark and industrial design applications on a daily basis. We have a proven track record of resolving cases to the benefit of clients, whether by obtaining interim injunctions, positioning cases for settlement or bringing them to trial.

Awaiting the next results of the IP Stars 2023 ranking

The results just published are partial, as they only cover trade mark advisory.

In the coming months, individual awards and recognitions will be announced for work in the area of patents or IP transactions, among others.

So let’s keep our fingers crossed for the continued success of our IP team.
