Tailor-made protection for your tailor-made IP.

We appreciate that your intellectual property is a unique asset. However, its uniqueness might make it difficult to enjoy protection under conventional intellectual property laws, namely patent, trademark, copyright, and design laws. When your IP does not fit under a conventional protection scheme, it is our IP attorneys’ task to find an alternative scheme for you.

Such a task requires that we analyze your asset in all aspects of IP and develop a legal strategy that will best suit your one-of-a-kind asset. For example, if the most proper solution is a protection scheme under the trade secret law, you will be given an explanation as to why this is the right fit for your asset as well as advice on how to manage it properly. Since there is no one-size-fits-all protection for different assets, our specialized IP attorneys service in Thailand can offer a tailor-made strategy for you.

Our expertise in this field extends beyond the usual IP protection. We can assist clients who have geographical indications (GI) as their IP assets. In addition to registering GIs with the Department of Intellectual Property for our clients, we can provide assistance in terms of coordinating with the Excise Department, the police, the Consumer Protection Commission, and the IP & IT Court. This includes enforcing GI rights against the unauthorized use of GIs, as well as other geographically misleading words and symbols. It involves a lot of detailed work, but our specialization lies in knowing how to handle it right and well.

Before offering a solution to a client, we professionally explore other laws to support the use of the governing IP law, ensuring the strongest possible protection and best match your IP asset. Our ability to leverage our broad perspective in customizing protection is precisely what your business needs.
