Overview

Our lawyers have specialized experience in litigating and counseling clients on a broad range of matters involving intellectual property issues and data protection.  We help our clients fight infringement and counterfeiting and increase the level of protection of their copyright and trademarks both domestically and internationally.  Having represented companies from a variety of industries before courts and intellectual property authorities, we are well positioned to provide our clients with distinct knowledge and experience in the areas of domestic and international intellectual property law.  

Our litigation experience in the area of intellectual property law comprises a number of first-ever precedents in the Latvian judicial practice (including the first-ever challenge of a patented invention, the first-ever court judgment establishing trademark infringement and the first-ever case of disposal of counterfeit goods at a customs warehouse).  Our lawyers have successfully challenged and introduced new interpretations of multiple legal provisions within enactments of copyright, trademark, and patent law.  

Our partner Agris Bitāns is president of AIPPI Latvian National Group and a frequent speaker at conferences and workshops on intellectual property matters.
