Advising on all fronts of IP law, PLMJ acts for an impressive client roster that contains leading names from the pharmaceutical, telecoms, technology, financial and media sectors. The team has been active in copyright-related matters, but is also skilled at assisting with trade mark clearance and enforcement, and brand portfolio management at the domestic and international levels.
