  2. Intellectual Property Rights

More than ever, effective safeguarding and management of intellectual property is critical for companies to protect the value and maintain a competitive advantage in their respective markets.  The diffusion of digital technology and its deep reach globally have given rise to unprecedented opportunities for IP dilution and infringements.  As brands continue to grow in value based on consumers’ expectations of reliability, quality, and value, companies must be able to rely on experienced counsel to guide them in fortifying their intellectual property protections.

Managing and protecting intellectual property has become a complex endeavor for global and domestic companies. Multinational companies often have substantial IP portfolios and operations in multiple jurisdictions with various IP laws and levels of enforcement.   Our capabilities at KNP LAW are not limited to counseling and advisory work; we are also skilled at negotiating IP agreements, enforcing our clients’ IP rights, and working with our dispute resolution team to protect our clients’ interests in formal dispute resolution channels, if necessary. We are ready to assist if you need to devise a suitable protection strategy for your expanding IP portfolio or resolve a multi-jurisdictional dispute.

More about this service


Trademarks play a prominent role in marketing and, in general, in competition in the market. Trademarks ensure that consumers can distinguish the goods and services of one company from similar goods or services of another company without any confusion. This is the main reason why the protection of trademarks is of paramount importance. Trademark protection is one of our many fields of expertise in intellectual property law. In the course of trademark protection KNP LAW’s IP team gives legal advice on creating the proper trademark, the trademark licensing procedure, and extension of the trademark protection and assists in trademark infringement disputes. 

Copy Rights and Claims

The legal protection of copyright works is foundational for the operation and development of the Hungarian and global cultural sector and promotes the safety of jobs, enterprises, and investments. Many industries are based on copyright protection, such as music, book publishing, radio and television broadcasting, software, and film production. KNP LAW has extensive experience dealing with the legal protection copyrights afford and how they impact entities in different industries. Questions may arise during an employment relationship, a transaction, and other situations in which KNP can assist. 

We have extensive experience in dealing with IP as part of a more comprehensive commercial transaction and arranging tax-efficient licensing and exploitation as a stand-alone service. We regularly advise on IP rights about the estates of well-known individuals and professionals in creative industries. 

Similarly to all of our practice groups, KNP LAW’s IP team works seamlessly with other substantive firm practices to ensure that our clients benefit from the full complement of our expertise and experience.  We are often asked to assist on matters that first come to the firm through a different department but which may later present intellectual property protection questions.
