Intellectual Property

We at ILChambers believe IP assets to be a core asset. As the world embraces the information age, and data ever more easily disseminated, it becomes increasingly vital for IP owners to protect their IP assets. These include their copyrights, trademarks, logos and slogans, industrial designs, domain names, patents and trade secrets. We can help in a variety of ways, be it to register your IP with the relevant authority or to come up with the ideal structure, whether it be through licensing, franchising, or other grant of rights, in order to regulate and protect the rights and responsibilities relating to IP assets.
