Intellectual Property, Technology and Data Protection

Comprehensive advice on the development, protection, and use of intellectual property rights and data

Intellectual property such as innovation, expertise, and strong trademarks has always been cornerstones to business success. In an increasingly digitalized world where data is forming the basis for more and more business models, data and the correct handling of it are also developing into such a cornerstone and crucial intangible asset.

Our Practice Group Intellectual Property, Technology and Data Protection has a broad knowledge and many years of experience in developing, protecting and correctly using intellectual property rights and data, which are essential for almost any company. Our core areas of work include in particular the following services:

  • Creating internal IP- and data protection policies
  • Development and worldwide registration (including administration) of intellectual property rights (in particular, copyright, trademark, company name, and design rights, as well as patent rights in cooperation with external patent attorneys)
  • Representation before civil courts and the Swiss Federal Institute of Intellectual Property (IPI) in the enforcement and defence of intellectual property rights
  • Drafting and negotiating of license agreements for the licensing of intellectual property rights and data as well as outsourcing-projects
  • Drafting and negotiating of software/IT-, know-how-, R&D-, distribution-, and other IP related contracts
  • Comprehensive advice on ICT projects (contracts, regulatory framework)
  • Data protection compliance - in particular concerning the correct application of Swiss and European data protection law (FADP and GDPR) when implementing new business models and new technologies (BIM, IoT, AI, Chatbots etc.)
