Sımaj is a firm of Turkish Patent and Trademark Attorneys, European Patent Attorneys, and lawyers dealing with obtaining and defending industrial and intellectual property rights. The firm’s origin traces back to the years of the establishment of the Turkish Patent Institute in 1994.
The firm’s areas of practice, in particular, include drafting, filing, and prosecuting all kinds of IP applications and validating European Patents as well as conducting opposition, invalidation, and cancellation proceedings. Besides the above, the firm is also involved in litigation and unfair competition actions before the competent authorities.
The firm serves a broad range of clients from large multinational companies to initial startups. In addition to protecting intellectual property rights, SIMAJ also offers strategic advice for the purpose of securing an increased competitive force for its clients and managing their IP portfolio.
Membership association and participation are of considerable importance and therefore the partners of the firm are members and regular participants of the international associations for intellectual property such as INTA, ECTA, EPI, MARQUES, LES, AIPPI, GRUR, and AIPLA.
Today, we are admitted to represent our clients before the Turkish Patent Institute, Turkish IP Courts, Civil, Criminal and Administrative Courts, the Turkish Minister of Culture for copyright matters, the Turkish Domain Name Authority, the European Patent Office, and WIPO.
