Our team is adept at counseling clients on the registration, licensing, management and enforcement of copyrights, trademarks and intellectual property rights in general. Our clients rely on us for advice on the most efficient strategy for the protection of their intangible assets, at a national (in all jurisdictions where Rokas is active), EU or international level.

The services provided by our team of experts include:

  • Advice on the registration and protection of patents and trademarks at international (e.g. before the WIPO), European (e.g. before the EUIPO, the EPO) and local level;
  • Representation of our clients in administrative proceedings and in judicial disputes before the national authorities (civil and administrative) and courts of all instances, including unfair competition cases, as well as before the EUIPO and the General Court of the EU;
  • Representation of our clients in multi-party negotiations regarding the rights of collective rights societies, such as those related to the private copying levy;
  • Defending our clients in disputes arising from counterfeited and pirated goods, customs disputes, parallel imports, goodwill and reputation rights, technical innovations, trade secrets, confidential information;
  • Advice on transactions entailing IP rights, and ranging from a simple license to use agreements to complex transactions.

As part of our practice, we have advised on several occasions the Greek government and the Athens Chambers of Commerce on trademark law issues, particularly concerning suggested legislative reforms and the implementation of international treaties regarding trademarks and corporate names.
