Protecting your intellectual property
In an increasingly competitive market, it is crucial for a company to develop and align its IP strategy with its business strategy. This underpins our services to help you create and manage your IP, deal with any disputes and leverage value from your IP portfolio as an asset.
Indonesia is a huge market with great opportunity. Contrary to popular belief, it has a sound IP legal framework, but careful planning and management is essential to ensure success.
We provide all round services for all aspects of intellectual property protection, commercialisation and enforcement in Indonesia and Timor Leste.

The Indonesian legal system presents a number of challenges in conducting IP enforcement. We handle a wide range of contentious matters, ranging from oppositions before the Trade Marks Office and actions in the Commercial Court, to large scale enforcement actions against infringers.
We have particular experience in the organisation and management of brand enforcement programmes, including evidence specialist, throughout South East Asia. We also work with administrative authorities to control infringements e.g. with Customs to detain infringing goods as they arrive in Indonesia. We also conduct raids against infringers, from simple local actions against counterfeiters to complex regional actions.
Our dispute resolution team handles oppositions and revocation proceedings, as well as freedom to operate advice and, where necessary enforcement and as a last resort litigation.
We have extensive IP litigation experience in all types of IP dispute including patent, trade mark, design, passing-off and domain name disputes in Indonesia. Our lawyers understand the need to protect your IP, to exploit it, and to enforce it as appropriate.
