Quality and experience in intellectual property

Intellectual property can be an organisation’s most valuable asset. However, in these globalised times, you need to consider your IP on a local, pan-Middle Eastern and international scale. You need effective strategies for managing your portfolios, ensuring they are both protected and, where appropriate, marketable.

Our IP lawyers in Iraq strive to understand your business so that you maximise the value of your intellectual property rights.

Many of our IP lawyers have worked in-house and therefore understand the key issues you face. Delivered by lawyers who have spent many years working in the region, with strong linguistic skills (including Arabic, Armenian, English and French), our Middle East service is authentic, providing the local knowledge and technical experience required to guide you through the most complex cases.

Sector experience enables us to provide you with targeted expertise, specific to your needs. Our IP skills and know-how, coupled with cutting-edge technology, sets the standard and allows us to make a real difference to your success. Our IP team based in Baghdad and Erbil can discuss a range of award winning pricing models and solutions designed to deliver transparency and certainty for your legal spend.

Intellectual property case studies

  • acting for a major international tobacco company. This case involved executing and managing anti-counterfeiting work in the Middle East and parts of Asia and Africa.
  • acting on behalf of a leading Middle Eastern airline in a case where a domain name (including the trademark of the client) was registered by a third party. The disputed domain name was identical to the registered trademark of the complainant and we succeeded in transferring the disputed domain name to the client.
