Intellectual Property Disputes

In today’s fast-moving, media-influenced and digital society, it is surprisingly easy for one’s creative energies to be exploited or infringed.

McAuley Hawach Lawyers will act on your behalf to protect your Intellectual Property, including in relation to Copyright, Trademark, Registered Design and Patent Infringement matters.

It is important that you act quickly to stop the infringers from exploiting your hard-earned commercial advantage in the marketplace.

For example, the whole purpose of a patent is to grant its holder a monopoly over an invention or certain aspects of an invention (to the exclusion of others, unless consent is given) over a period of time; a trademark allows consumers to tell at a glance the origin and the provider of the goods and services that are being sold; and copyright law protects the precious intellectual energies of authors, playwrights, musicians and artists (to name but a few).

These are all important rights that need to be enforced against those who try to steal your work.

We can take these infringers to Court. We have over 50 years combined experience litigating matters and can help you with your claim.
