No one wants to become embroiled in a complex or costly IP dispute, but sometimes the stakes are so high that they become unavoidable. If this happens, you have the reassurance of knowing that Deacons will act to protect you in IP enforcement or high-stakes litigation. Deacons was a pioneer among large general practice firms when it began doing IP litigation in the mid-1970s. The award-winning Deacons IP Litigation team has acted in a broad array of IP matters ranging from patent and designs, trade mark, passing off, company names infringement, copyright, trade secrets and confidential information and has won many high profile leading cases.
As infringers become more sophisticated and international, IP rights owners need to be more proactive and innovative in their battle against counterfeiters. Deacons has decades of experience in advising on anti-counterfeiting strategies and co-ordinating and implementing regional and international investigations and enforcement programmes. We are aware that different approaches must be taken to address different types of infringement and we work closely with investigators, local authorities, customs and other enforcement agencies to achieve practical and cost-effective results for our clients.
Our experienced lawyers will help you avoid costly litigation if it can be avoided, and if it can’t, we will fight tenaciously to protect your assets and interests. Our experience in China also puts us in an advantageous position in formulating effective cross-border enforcement strategies.
