Well-established IP boutique Biro Oktroi Roosseno is a firm of 100 IP professionals with a core team of eight lawyers. The team's strength lies in patents, particularly in the pharmaceutical and electronics industry, though in the past 12 months the firm has seen a sharp increase in trade mark prosecution, and is rapidly building its experience in this area. Notable clients include Toyota, Bridgestone, Rolex and Yamaha.
Endra Prabawa mainly focuses on contentious trade mark work. Prabawa and Deasy Florida represented Closet Design in an appeal of the rejection of its application for the mark Bimba & Lola. The trade mark office denied the application on the grounds that it was too similar to a prior mark, Lollas. The firm convinced the examiner to take a different approach that clearly differentiated the two marks, resulting in successful registration of the mark.
The firm also represented Rolex in a domain name dispute over www.buyrolexmens.com. The website was selling infringing goods bearing the Rolex mark. Through negotiations, the team was able to reach a favourable settlement. The domain name rights were also transferred back to Rolex with a commitment from the former owners to refrain from using the mark in the future.
