Intellectual property

Intellectual property

At act legal Spain, we firmly believe in the importance of protecting the many intangible assets that comprise the business models in most industries, whether traditional or innovative.

Our team has extensive experience and knowledge of the market and can provide comprehensive advising. We assist companies that are taking their first steps towards the creation, negotiation, development, and exploitation of intangible assets, and we represent them in disputes in the event that their intellectual and industrial property rights are infringed.

We advise our clients on a daily basis regarding copyrights, computer programs, trademarks, trade dresses, domain names, fashion designs, business secrets, unfair competition, know-how, image rights, privacy, honour and reputation, audiovisual law, advertising and marketing law, industrial design, designation of origin or geographical indication, and patents.

What’s more, thanks to our presence in international markets and constant involvement in cross-border matters, we can effectively protect assets and markets that increasingly know no borders.
