Intellectual Property and Marketing law (Brækhus IP)

Intellectual property rights (IPR) as trademarks, patents, designs, copyright and trade secrets represent an increasingly bigger and more important part of most companies. The Norwegian Marketing Control Act provides companies with protection against copying and unfair exploitation of the company’s goodwill, at the same time as the Act sets requirements for the company’s own marketing, both in relation to competitors and consumers.

Competent advice and assistance regarding intellectual assets contribute to increasing the company’s assets, reducing risk and ensure a competitive advantage. Our lawyers have in-depth knowledge of the field and a growing number of companies are recognising the value of discussing intellectual property rights and marketing law questions with us. We assist companies throughout the life cycle, from idea to registered right, and onward to commercialisation of the intellectual assets.

Brækhus has a wide range of clients with different forms of intellectual property rights and marketing law needs. We assist with the full range of IPR and areas of marketing law. We have extensive experience with establishment, securing and enforcement of trademarks, designs, patents, copyright and trade secrets, as well as continuous advice regarding all marketing law questions.
