BMVN: A Local Firm with a Global Reach

BMVN International LLC (BMVN) is a fully licensed law firm and IP agent dedicated to representing Baker & McKenzie’s clients before the Vietnam National Office of Intellectual Property, courts, enforcement authorities and other Vietnamese authorities. Thanks to its strategic alliance with Baker & McKenzie, BMVN can deliver greater value to our clients as well as ensure consistency in the quality of our services.

Vietnam’s leading IP practice

BMVN’s lawyers are some of the foremost advisers on Vietnam’s IP law, with several decades of collective experience in assisting a diverse range of multinational and local clients with inbound and outbound investment projects, successful IP registrations, cancellations, appeals, litigation and enforcement, copyrights, licensing and franchising projects.

BMVN's lawyers have both international and local legal experience, which allows it to maintain its broad international perspective while still retaining the characteristics of a local firm in Vietnam. This unique dynamic allows our staff to provide innovative solutions to the cases they handle.

With lawyers and senior legal consultants focusing on the broad spectrum of IP and commercial IP transaction matters, BMVN has the depth of talent to create dedicated teams for each type of case they handle. BMVN's franchising practice has been particularly prominent recently, with multinational and local corporations alike seeking the advice of BMVN's expert team to assist in establishing franchises and other commercial presences throughout Vietnam.

Our work includes assisting the Vietnamese government in drafting the country’s first IP law, as well as the law’s implementing decrees. We have also trained judges, customs authorities and IP officials on a range of pertinent IP matters and played a key role in the founding of the Vietnam Anti-Counterfeiting and IP Protection Association for Foreign Invested Companies.

Our IP lawyers who train with Baker & McKenzie Vietnam are frequently cited as leading lawyers in their field, and clients have praised our practice stating that "the firm delivers excellent customer interaction and prompt responses to all our legal needs." (Chambers Asia, 2012)

Litigation and Enforcement

Comprised of some of Vietnam's most sophisticated litigators, BMVN is fully licensed to represent clients in litigation cases in local Vietnamese courts. Our group includes leading Vietnamese professionals who have filed and handled some of the country’s landmark litigation matters, including unfair competition, product liability and contract claim cases.

Our IP litigation and enforcement experience is broad. We have organized successful raids across various industry sectors, such as computer software and equipment, electronics, and clothing and eyewear, resulting in the seizure and destruction of numerous counterfeit goods. In close coordination with the local enforcement authorities, we have also successfully compelled a number of shops in Vietnam that falsely portrayed themselves as official distributors to permanently remove infringing signage. Our most recent cases include trying numerous domain name cases before the World Intellectual Property Organization, and protecting the data privacy of a multinational automobile company in a case spanning several years and involving the successful defeat of an appeal at one of Vietnam’s higher appellate jurisdictions.

BMVN’s specific areas of focus include:
  • Registration
  • Litigation and Enforcement
  • Copyright
  • Licensing and Franchising
  • Legal Translation Services
  • Patent Protection
