Waselius & Wist’s specialist team handles a variety of intellectual property law related issues. Our specialists provide proactive and strategic advice on how companies can protect and enforce their intellectual property rights in copyright, trademarks, patents, trade names, domain names, design, know-how and trade secrets. We also have a good track record of having helped clients who have been accused of infringing rights.

We have a strong knowledge in marketing law and advise clients in a wide variety of matters from marketing clearances to disputes dealing with unfair business practice and misleading marketing before the Market Court. The firm has assisted major clients in their implementation of e-commerce systems and thereto related marketing law and data protection issues.

We have also niche competence in trade secrets matters and have acted for several clients against previous employees for misuse of trade secrets when transferring to a new employer. We take these matters very seriously and do not hesitate to ask the police to commence investigations if there are clear indications of misuse and unlawful disclosure of trade secrets.

Our specialists are also experienced in the negotiation and drafting of IP licenses and have also acted as both counsel and arbitrators in a number of IP and IT licensing disputes.
We have during the past years been involved in several telecom transactions on both an international and a domestic level. The review of IP intense agreements and arrangements also forms a considerable part of the due diligence work in connection with company acquisitions.
