Intellectual Property Litigation

Intellectual Property Litigation - Dundas Lawyers

Intellectual property (IP) is becoming an increasingly important asset with many organisations going to great lengths to identify, create and protect it.  Infringement and IP theft is also on the rise so it would seem fair to say that IP is also becoming the next business battleground where the fight for competitive advantage is won or lost. Dundas Lawyers has experience identifying, enforcing and defending intellectual property rights and has acted for companies to protect and defend their intellectual property rights inside and outside of the courtroom.

With a background in the creation and commercialisation of intellectual property as a foundation, Legal Practice Director, Malcolm Burrows, understands the commercial realities faced by parties to IP litigation.  Dundas Lawyers, while fighting hard to advance and protect the interests of its clients, also seeks to resolve disputes in a commercial and business-savvy way, provides its clients with the best legal and commercial outcome possible.  We adopt a multidisciplinary approach to strategic IP litigation.
