Cyprus has always made a consistent effort to remain in line with international developments in intellectual property law. It has ratified all major international intellectual property law related treaties and harmonized domestic law with the acquis communautaire. The regulation of intellectual property matters in Cyprus rests with the Industrial Property Office, which also handles disputes at the first instance by the Office (which may then be handled by District Courts and Supreme Court).
Our law firm is experienced in a broad spectrum of Intellectual Property law-related areas, and we provide a comprehensive range of services with regard to trademarks, patents, industrial designs, trade names, domain names, counterfeiting, copyrights and all court proceedings relating to these matters.
Our team regularly handles national, community and international trademark registrations before the Cyprus Trademark Registry, OHIM and WIPO respectively.
G. Vrikis & Associates LLC also provides services relating to trademark searches, renewals, recording of changes, trademark opposition, invalidity and cancellation proceedings.
We are also experienced in the field of patent proceedings before the Cyprus Patent Registry, including the validation of European Patents in Cyprus, renewals/payment of annuities, and the registration of national patents.
