Phoenix Legal provides advice on a full range of Intellectual property issues. Our lawyers handle both contentious as well as non-contentious matters having expertise in traditional forms of IP such as trademarks, copyrights, patents, and also in non-conventional areas of intangible property like geographical indications and industrial designs.
On the litigation and enforcement front, our lawyers have been engaged in both civil and criminal cases from diverse business sectors such as healthcare, pharmaceutical, software, media & entertainment and fashion ranging from standard trade mark and copyright infringement disputes to complex patent infringement matters. Our lawyers also have the experience of collecting evidence as court commissioners for executing John Doe and Anton Piller Orders. Apart from litigation, we have also acted for leading international and domestic clients on domain name disputes in arbitration proceedings before the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) and the National Internet Exchange of India (NIXI).
On the transactional side, our lawyers have acted on cross-border deals involving transfer and use of IP rights such as copyright acquisitions, franchising models, trade mark licenses, technology transfer and software development agreements. We have undertaken due diligences on target companies with special focus on intellectual property rights and advised on structure options to acquire and protect such rights. We also regularly advise on data protection and privacy issues under the Indian law.
Our IP prosecution practice comprises not only expert trade mark attorneys but also patent attorneys with varied scientific backgrounds. Our trade mark attorneys and branding experts handle brand portfolios for our clients before the trademark and copyright office and also advise on brand protection strategies in India.
