Intellectual Property Law

Intellectual Property Law is a fast-developing niche for the Maltese Islands, and one that we at Scerri & Bonello Advocates have developed a concrete understanding of.  Legal consultancy regarding Intellectual Property Rights includes tendering advice on the registration of trademarks and patents as well as actions for infringement of intellectual property rights (IPR) in general.

 Malta is fast becoming an attractive jurisdiction for the domiciliation of IPR, particularly patents, in view of the attractive fiscal regime that has been developed by the Government of Malta. Malta is also becoming an attractive hub for digital gaming, software developers and similar industries.  Incentives for creativity are available and we at Scerri & Bonello are proud to have been among the first to give a significant input so that creative industries would set up shop in Malta. In recent years Malta has managed and is constantly continuing to attract investment in the pharmaceutical industry, and in research and development in general. This makes it imperative for investors to be able to seek and obtain proper guidance, support and advice in setting up their activities here in Malta. In this scenario, the relevance of IPR and other related areas of law and legal services and the importance of proper protection, can never be over stated.

 Our firm has a clear understanding of the regulatory framework governing IPR in Malta, particularly through the experience of our lawyers within the field as well as through our international network of IPR practitioners.

 Our aim and commitment is to serve our esteemed clients by providing full assistance in the field of IPR and other related areas of law. The services we offer include trademark and patent searching; tendering of advice and guidance on proper protection of intellectual and/or industrial property; registration of trademarks, patents, designs and domain names; tendering of advice concerning the protection of copyright; creation and / or administration and management of IPR portfolios, including renewal reminder service; registration of rightholders with Customs Authorities in Malta for the purposes of  applicable legislation in cross-border matters and continued follow up of procedures in connection therewith.  We also assist clients in litigation regarding intellectual property rights.
