Intellectual property

Protecting your personality rights, your creative assets and your innovations is increasingly difficult and complex.

At ATFIELD, we understand the challenges in IP protection and can provide unique and strategic solutions. Our expertise covers all the traditional branches of IP law, including trade mark rights, copyright and related rights. The ATFIELD network member firms and their lawyers also handle emerging technology-related disciplines.

A recognised team of experts has extensive experience in fighting against ambush marketing, counterfeiting and piracy (including of TV rights) and other forms of IP infringement in Belgium and beyond. The lawyers in our network have been dealing with high-profile IP and personality right disputes before the Belgian courts, the Benelux Court of Justice and the European Union courts, the Benelux Office for Intellectual Property (BOIP) and the dispute settlement and mediation bodies of the European Union Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO).

Our member firms’ lawyers have also built significant expertise in the field of IP-related contracts, sponsorship contracts and artist agreements and have produced a comprehensive guide for the Belgian State in this area.
