Global Intellectual Property

Intelligent protection

Defining and protecting your innovation and creativity is increasingly difficult and complex. Internet marketing and sophisticated counterfeiting operations are expanding risks and opportunities for IP holders, and inefficiencies in the international patent system are leading many to clamor for change.

At Baker & McKenzie, we understand new challenges in IP protection and can provide unique and global solutions. We see IP management as a strategic issue and have developed people, processes and technologies to promote sound and cost-effective stewardship of intellectual property. A leading global IP practice, we are trusted counsel to some of the world’s largest and most innovative companies and our over 400 IP timekeepers worldwide help manage and enforce the IP portfolios of more than 100 multinationals.

What others say

  • We were named, Global IP Law Firm of the Year at the 2015 Managing IP Awards held in London. Alongside winning the highly prestigious award, we were also awarded Europe Copyright Firm of the Year and Firm of the Year in Poland, Thailand and Indonesia as well as the China – Transactional IP Firm of the Year Award.
  • Ranking us in Band 1 for the seventh year running (2009 to 2015), Chambers Global describes us “a truly global firm that leverages its extensive international network to advise on complex cross-border IP matters.” The publication also recognized our strength in the Asia Pacific region -- “with impressive teams in Hong Kong, Singapore, the Philippines and Vietnam” – as well as our “wide spread of offices across Europe, the USA and Latin America”.
  • In its 2015 WTR1000 rankings, World Trademark Review acknowledges Baker & McKenzie's "unmatched international trademark practice" that makes it "a clear favorite for a multitude of multinationals." It underscored how the Firm's dedicated global IP support centre in the Philippines helps the Firm easily and efficiently manage and direct the largest portfolios, while capitalizing on its local and cross-border trademark expertise.
