Protecting your business’s trademark features and the assets of your success require the utmost attention and care, and a law firm that knows, follows and stays abreast of the correct procedures, legislation and regulations regarding Intellectual Property Rights (IP); an area that is continually updated.

From planning, registration, patent matters, trademark protection, copyrights and licensing, to ongoing monitoring, Kaimakliotis & Co ensures that your business’s national and international IP protection is upheld.

Intellectual Property is defined as ‘creations of the mind: inventions; symbols, names and images used in commerce; literary and artistic works.’ There are two categories: ‘Industrial Property’ (which covers trademarks, inventions, industrial designs and geographical indications), and ‘Copyright’ (which covers creative works, including films, music, art, and literary works).

Cyprus is a member of the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO), and an official member of OHIM - ‘Office for Harmonisation in the Internal Market (Trade Marks and Designs)’, making IP an area that is safeguarded on the island.
