Intellectual Property

GURKAYNAK's team is duly qualified in Turkey to provide its clients with the complete range of legal services for protecting and exploiting all types of intellectual property and technology assets. We assist our clients in the registration and protection of patents, trademarks, copyrights and industrial designs. To obtain maximum protection in Turkey, rightholders should register their registrable intellectual property rights, so far as possible. Furthermore, registered or not, in order to properly protect the fruits of their hard work, we assist our clients with respect to all forms of infringement issues.

GURKAYNAK assists its clients in policing the market place and taking prompt action against infringers. We also serve our clients in anti-piracy and anti-counterfeiting campaigns.

We have successfully prosecuted unauthorized use of various trademarks in Turkey. Our experience involves prosecution of unauthorized registration and use of "well-known" trademarks and trademark annulment cases.

Furthermore, in addition to our extensive experience in drafting technology transfer agreements and structuring various types of licensing arrangements, we assist our clients in legal services concerning the acquisition and use of information technology products and services.

GURKAYNAK also advises on contracts for the acquisition and exploitation of computer software, databases, creative works, designs and publishing rights.
