Intellectual Property


Infinitus Law Corporation has one of the leading intellectual property (IP) practices in Singapore. We advise on a wide range of IP issues including trade mark protection, copyright, passing off, registered designs, patents, interface of different IP rights, domain names, technology and the enforcement of such rights including infringement and anti-counterfeiting. Apart from non-contentious prosecution work, we also handle trade mark anti-counterfeiting and patent and trade mark litigation.

Our experienced lawyers allow for a dynamic cross-over between IP protection laws, enforcement and litigation, and related technology and corporate work. We adopt an efficient and effective approach to advise our clients on IP protection strategies, regional and worldwide registration programs, and regular audit and review of IP assets.

Our clients include both Singapore companies and a significant number of globally recognised industry names. We have developed a strong affinity with our clients’ needs and expectations, and we take a keen interest in all aspects of preservation and enhancement of their IP rights. We aspire to build an in-depth knowledge of all aspects of historical development and advancements made by clients in their business activities to enable us to be pro-active in advising clients on further needs and possibilities for protection of their IP rights.

We take a positive approach toward enforcing our clients’ IP rights. Our lawyers have over the years been involved in several leading cases in Singapore involving novel points of IP law.

We are well equipped to advise on all aspects of infringement, anti-counterfeiting and dispute resolution in Singapore as well as around the ASEAN region. We are well-versed in the area of investigation and administrative processes for criminal measures for anti-counterfeiting such as police enforcement, search warrants and private prosecutions as well as civil law counterparts such as Anton Piller orders and interlocutory injunctions.
