Intellectual Property & Copyright

In today´s global world, intellectual property and copyright are one of the most important assets of any company. Moreover, the Internet, the wide share of knowledge, the off shoring of outsourcing services, among many other factors, have made fight against counterfeiting and unauthorized licensing and distribution of works an increasingly challenging task. As such, proactive, preventive and effective policies must be implemented to protect these assets based on experienced and comprehensive legal advice. Protecting Intellectual Property & Copyright in the countries covered by Miranda in no way should be treated as a standard practice as many of these countries are not party to some of the most relevant international conventions governing IP and copyright. Furthermore, those countries have not implemented modern and appropriate legal frameworks to protect IP and copyright.

For the above reasons, our Firm has created a leading Intellectual Property & Copyright practice to protect, on a preventive and contentious basis, our clients´ rights. We work closely with clients in order to understand their business and their needs and to leverage their strengths. Our Firm is proud to work for some of the most important listed companies and private companies, as well as for many entrepreneurs and start-up projects. Additionally, we cooperate on a regular basis with government authorities for the protection of our clients' interests, namely on anti-counterfeiting matters.
