“You hoped for longer days.
Speaking of love in minutes was ugly.”

“Siz geniş zamanlar umuyordunuz.
Çirkindi dar vakitlerde bir sevgiyi söylemek.”

Behçet Necatigil (1916 – 1979)

In connection with these rights, we advise on:

  • the intellectual property aspects of corporate transactions
  • registrations, renewals, withdrawals and cancellations
  • drafting agreements relating to these rights
  • permissions to use and licenses
  • changes of title and transfers
  • representation before the Turkish Patent Institute
  • claims against third parties and representation in disputes, including in civil and criminal cases
  • investigating whether goods at customs or in the marketplace are counterfeit
  • applying for and exercising raid actions

Given the emergence of new technologies such as cryptocurrencies, non-fungible tokens (NFTs), and Turkey’s expanding startup scene, our technology practice works in close contact with our intellectual property team, especially in regard to transactions and employee-created intellectual property.
