IP & Technology

IP & Technology

We recognise that technology is rapidly changing the way legal services are delivered. Our GZGTech department focuses on innovation and opportunities in the legal tech market in Cyprus and in solving our clients’ complex problems, with compliant by design solutions.

Our team evaluates processes that may be simplified and enhanced using technological innovations, Blockchain and Artificial Intelligence. Our team works closely with the strategic legal advisory services provided by other practice groups in the Firm, allowing us to handle large quantities of administrative work and to achieve better outcomes promptly and more efficiently.

We help our clients protect their intellectual property in an ever-changing and transforming world. We advise and assist across the IP cycle from IP registration, ownership, franchising and licensing to data protection, alignment, and transfer.

The team handles both contentious and non-contentious matters, with particular focus on brand management, protection of IP rights including trademarks, copyrights, industrial designs and advertising campaigns, domain registration and protection, IP litigation and arbitration, and contests decisions of the Cyprus Consumer Protection Authority and the Cyprus Radio Television Authority. Tax advice in relation to IP rights also forms part of the practice.

We take pride in the trust our clients put in us. We act for some of the leading IP owners locally and internationally, including individuals, artists, TV celebrities, musicians, distributers, municipalities, banks and international software companies, advertisers and marketers, operating in the technology, healthcare, entertainment, real estate and retail sectors, amongst others.

The firm is the sole Cypriot member of the Global Advertising Lawyers Alliance (GALA) - an alliance of lawyers with expertise and experience in advertising, marketing and promotion law, and the International Association of Trusted Blockchain Applications (INATBA), which offers public and private developers and users of DLT a global forum to interact with regulators and policymakers.
