Intellectual Property Law

We aid individuals and global businesses by providing intellectual property lawyers.

We at LegalWorks recognize the importance of intellectual property safeguards in today’s changing business and digital landscape. We believe in the importance of having the right legal protection in the form of an intellectual property law firm that can help a company to grow and prosper. Protecting information and data can help individuals and companies in the long run. Intellectual Property are intangible human creations such as names, logos, artistic, and scientific work. These creations are protected by the government of UAE because they bring financial and commercial benefit to the creators. The three main type of intellectual property in the UAE include;

  1. Trademarks – This is a logo, symbol, or design that identifies a company or its services and products. Trademarks in the UAE are valid for 10 years upon registration
  2. Copyrights – This provides the author with exclusive rights over a work of science, literature, and arts.  Copyrights are valid throughout the life of the author and 50 years after their deaths
  3. Patents – This helps protect a new invention or innovative idea with industrial relevance. Patents are valid for 20 years upon registration.

The Ministry of Economy is the government authority responsible for registering intellectual property in the UAE and handling disputes. The laws that deal with the three types of intellectual property are  the Federal Law No. 37 of 1992 for trademarks, Federal Law No. 7 of 2002 for Copyrights, and Federal Law No. 31 of 2016 for Patents, industries drawings and designs.

Our team aids entrepreneurs, businesses, and individuals in acquiring IP rights and resolving IP related disputes. We assist our local and international clients in numerous intellectual property law matters. We offer a host of services related to acquiring various intellectual property rights such as drafting and registration as well as dispute resolution related to patents, copyrights, and trademarks by assisting in litigation and arbitration.

In case of IP infringements individual’s complaints can be lodged with the Ministry of Economy. We provide competent intellectual property solicitors who can assist in the resolution of IP disputes through alternative dispute resolution methods such as mediation and arbitration. In case an agreement is not reached, we can also represent our clients in court through litigation. We ensure that you and your intellectual property is secure and free from infringements.
