Malta’s laws and political thrust are apt to help you derive the maximum commercial value of your intellectual property, whilst protecting the authenticity of your work and brand. Malta’s intellectual property (IP) laws promote development in the industry to the best possible level, whilst enjoying the benefits of a legal system that is largely harmonised throughout the EU. This ensures that intellectual property rights arising in Malta are easily recognised and enforceable throughout the whole of the EU and vice versa. Malta has also ratified major IP Conventions, thus ensuring that the recognition of IP rights arising in Malta extends beyond the EU.

Through its dedicated team of highly experienced professionals, Ganado Advocates is able to understand the challenges faced by its clients in the IP, telecommunications, media and technology sectors and provide practical solutions in a timely and effective manner. The team advises on the full range of contentious and non-contentious issues in the technology, media and entertainment space, registers trade marks and designs in Malta and Europe and manages IP portfolios for its clients, drafts and negotiates IP related agreements, advises and assists on financing and acquisition projects, and assists with obtaining regulatory authorisations and clearances.

Ganado Advocates has a specific IP litigation focus and represents clients in infringement lawsuits and arbitration proceedings. It also acts as representative for brand owners in customs procedures, including applications for action, to ensure that counterfeit goods entering or traversing the Maltese territorial waters are immediately seized and destroyed in a timely manner.
