About Fasken IP

Protect your creativity – IP asset management means getting the most from your portfolio. It’s more than obtaining patents or industrial designs, registering or using trademarks or adequately leveraging your copyrights. Often, it means quantifying the value of your assets and enforcing your rights to maximize the commercial value of your business.

IP is worldwide, but local rules vary, as does the local regulatory environment. That’s why our technical experts are assisted by seasoned professionals knowledgeable of local regulations, particularly in the health and life sciences. With increased cross-border business and the prevalence of counterfeiting, it’s important to have experienced counsel who will navigate regulations and pursue remedies wherever you do business. Fasken has trusted relationships with lawyers and agents across the world, including on the three continents where we are physically located. Our team is qualified in both common and civil law; many of us are bilingual, and between us we speak many languages.
