Deacons can help your business thrive through making the best use of your IP assets.
In today’s competitive economy, commercial transactions are increasingly driven by IP as businesses realise that IP forms a significant part of their assets. Whether you are at the forefront of revolutionary technological developments, you own a valuable IP portfolio, or you are simply looking for ways to add value to an existing business, practical advice from experienced lawyers can help you secure the best return on your investment and manage risks.
As Hong Kong’s own world-class law firm, our lawyers can help maximise the value of your IP. We regularly assist both well-known brands and cutting-edge ventures with all manner of Hong Kong and Mainland China-related commercial advisory work from IP audits, due diligence, consumer rights and local law compliance, to acquisitions, joint ventures and innovative business models. Our experienced lawyers also advise on a broad range of transactional IP agreements from assignments, licences, manufacturing and distribution agreements, to celebrity endorsements and brand collaborations, to R&D, IT and e-commerce agreements. We also regularly advise on the IP and related aspects of advertising and marketing campaigns and agreements.
As Mainland China continues to encourage foreign investment, taking advantage of the opportunities for doing business there, requires professional advice from someone familiar with the local law, thorough due diligence and a holistic IP strategy. Our team understands the complexities of Chinese contract law and regulations and can provide pragmatic advice on your commercial transactions to ensure effective arrangements, practical protection and predictable contract enforcement.
Our cross-border experience allows us to provide comprehensive advice at a time when major developments in technology and e-commerce have given rise to issues that challenge the existing commercial legal framework.
