Some of our lawyers in the Intellectual Property team, some with scientific and technical backgrounds, have worked with leading multinational companies to register, enforce and exploit their IP rights. The team’s expertise includes prior work for IT, banking, telecoms, agribusiness and healthcare companies.

The team advises on national and international IP guarantee and enforcement strategies for clients and represents them in litigation in the defense of their IP rights when necessary. Lex Alliance understands, shares, and promotes the value of clients’ IP assets and avoids claims from third parties. Our clients can trust our lawyers to defend them, represent and advise in major patent and trade mark litigation cases and to provide them with highly sophisticated legal advice.

Lex Alliance IP lawyers are acknowledged for their support of significant M&A and capital markets deals, and on high-profile and complex corporate insolvencies. A substantial proportion of the team’s commercial workload therefore involves multi-jurisdictional issues.

We mainly work in the jurisdictions of Angola, Brazil, Cape Verde, Equatorial Guinea, Guinea-Bissau, Mozambique, Portugal, São Tomé and Príncipe and East Timor (Timor Leste)

Other matters of focus of our team also includes R&D, agency, distribution, franchising, sponsorship and other licensing agreements, as well as the related competition issues that come with those.
