Established 1936, Niederer Kraft Frey is a preeminent Swiss law firm with a proven track record of legal excellence and innovation.
Niederer Kraft Frey's IP practice focusses on a number of areas including brand protection strate-gies, commercial contracts relating to IP and know-how, and unfair competition.
Over the past few years, the focus of our work has been on advising multinational companies and organizations and international sports associations on IP-related issues, various trademark and company name related disputes including litigation and extra-judicial negotiations and settlements and the setting up of trademark and brand protection concepts in different industries. Further-more, we have been advising and negotiating various types of cooperation, R&D, patent and know-how assignment and licensing, distribution and other agreements that include significant IP elements, as well as issues of unfair competition law for example with "look-alike" products and their get-up or claims in advertising.
We regularly advise on high-profile and complex IP matters in different industries, including car manufacturing, aviation, sports, news and information management, and consumer goods. In these industries, we represent key players in a wide variety of IP-related issues, including IP litigation, trademark, design, copyright matters, unfair competition disputes, licensing and services agreements, sports sponsorship, television, media and product license agreements.
