Intellectual Property

Contemporary business success relies heavily on virtual assets and intellectual property. HL&A’s Intellectual Property lawyers advise clients on the full range of contentious and non-contentious IP related matters. We support clients with patents, trademarks, copyrights, designs, domain names, labels and other content, and help effectively prepare, process and register intellectual property, protect it against violations, derive commercial benefits from it, and seek compensation for infringement if required.

We create equitable agreements for Intellectual Property and content use, oversee and enforce them as required.

Our IP practice collaborates with our firm’s baking and finance, corporate, contracts teams to help clients monetise their intellectual property – such as through licensing and distribution arrangements, franchising, joint ventures and others.

When it comes to enforcement, our IP lawyers work closely with our dispute resolution team should a potential infringement or dispute arise. We have extensive experience in enforcing rights against counterfeiters, forgers, and copiers as well as executing proceedings with the relevant government bodies/departments and the UAE courts.

What People Say

Testimonials

I am writing to you to thank you all for the ongoing support you have provided our family since our daughter’s accident in 2016. You have guided us through the complexities of the UAE legal system in a way that has provided us with the time and space to focus our attention on our daughter’s sub-stational and ever-increasing health and medical needs with the confidence that Lily’s legal arrangements are in safe and expert hands. Stephen Ranger, Nesreen Nabil and Zahra Petafi in particular have been very supportive and compassionate since the accident and have always provided prompt advice and support to our many queries especially since our enforced return to Australia.

Black & White Engineering is a leading MEP engineering design consultancy with a long list of top clients and prestigious projects in our portfolio.  Our engineering expertise is second to none but to remain successful and at the top our game we also need to ensure we have strong legal advice and representation when we need it.  Many of the projects we work on, along with the contractual agreements that we are part of, are highly complex so it made sense for us to seek out an expert legal provider such as Hussain Lootah & Associates who can provide us with tailor made services to suit different situations.

I would like to extend a big thanks to Mr. Lootah and his team for the wonderful support that they have not only provided my firm but also friends and colleagues of mine to whom I recommended your company. We have been fortunate enough to experience your team’s expert advice and support in various forms and have not only found it to be extremely effective but also extremely reasonably priced, especially considering that many regard Hussain Lootah & Associates to be a leading Law firm in the UAE. I do not hesitate to recommend your firm to anyone in need of Legal advice, regardless of the nature of the advice sought.
