Intellectual property, marketing and media law

You will find some of the country's sharpest minds in IP, marketing and media law at Setterwalls. What these areas of law have in common is the fact that they relate to rapidly changing markets, which means that forward-looking advice is much in demand.

Our specialists operate in the interface where new technologies and new business models meet reality. We monitor and defend your patents and other rights and provide appropriate advice on how a service or product can best be marketed. We help you protect inventions, know-how, designs and trademarks as well as show you how to take action on piracy and infringement. We assist you as a representative in cases relating to patent infringements and other patent disputes. You will get help drafting and negotiating licence agreements and R&D agreements and we will also explain limitations and opportunities when using digital media. We can also assist with advance control of planned advertising and marketing actions, where we identify risks as well as opportunities. Of course, we can also take care of the day-to-day management of trademarks and domain names worldwide.
