Intellectual Property

With the increase in visual advertising, trademarks and image have become an inherent catalyst to the success of a company. Likewise the competition between national international companies in the UAE has led many corporations to consider registering a patent to safeguard their ideas, their services, their products and their name. The ability to protect each entity's intellectual property rights has become a must in the 21st century and a business's intellectual property is increasingly seen as a valuable asset.

Whether it is a trademark, patent or design rights search or registration, licensing agreement or assignment, Lutfi & Co does not lose sight of its basic responsibility to the client to preserve and enhance intellectual property as a valuable commercial asset.
