Intellectual property rights are very important assets for a company. It is important to determine who has the right to intellectual property rights in an employment relationship or assignment relationship, as well as in various forms of collaboration. The value of intellectual property rights has an impact during the acquisition and sale of companies as well as from a tax perspective. MAQS offers advice on all these issues.
As regards patents we have extensive experience in relation with patent disputes and a close relationship with Nordic Patent Service ApS.
