Donaldson & Burkinshaw has one of the oldest IP practices in Singapore dating back to the late 1930s, when Nestlé was one of its first clients. Over the decades many leading multinational corporations have chosen the firm to manage their IP portfolios including Coca-Cola, GlaxoSmithKline and Pernod Ricard.
The team of highly qualified patent and trade mark specialists offers the full range of IP services as well as litigation, enforcement and anti-counterfeiting measures. In addition to biotechnology, pharmaceuticals, electrical and mechanical engineering, the team is also adept at handling media and entertainment and technology-related IP matters.
Partner and registered patent agent E-Laine Chiam manages the trade mark and patent protection in Singapore and the region for major clients, while litigation and dispute resolution practice partner Chi Duan Gooi's focus is on IP disputes. Gooi represents clients before IPOS and the Singapore courts.
