Intellectual Property (IP) rights

The protection of intellectual property rights is of the utmost significance when
expanding and advancing into the ASEAN region. We advise our clients how to
strategically protect IP rights.

Piracy, replica productions, and trademark infringements are rampant in the ASEAN region and are some of
the most common issues that Japanese enterprises face. IP laws and their application are constantly changing because of evolving nature of new technology and ideas. This is especially true in the ASEAN region where
the laws surrounding IP are constantly being amended. It is challenging dealing with essentially unstable IP
laws and their local application. To maximize the value of the enterprise, it is critical to have the right legal
protection for the intellectual property rights of any business.

Attorneys in all member firms constantly study to understand the latest laws and are able to offer strategic
advice on how to protect the IP rights of our clients. From applications and registrations of trademarks and
patents to infringement disputes and litigation, One Asia Lawyers can support clients in all areas of IP law in
the ASEAN region in cooperation with local member firms.
