Intellectual Property in Dubai

A month ago I mentioned that my colleague Alex Khan was in the Gulf to make contacts and to assess whether there was a need for the services of the English intellectual property bar (see “There’s more to Qatar than Footie”, 3 Dec 2010). Alex met several of my contacts in the area and found that there was indeed a need for specialist advice and representation on IP and technology law in the area as well as arbitration and mediation services that I can supply. There is also demand for CPD training which our chambers service company already offers in England and Alex and I will be glad to act as speakers and trainers on courses the company intends to offer for expatriate solicitors and patent and TM attorneys in the region.

To market our services we are putting together a new website “From Manchester to Manama” a screen dump of which appears below:

We shall register this site under a UAE, Bahrain or Qatar domain name.

We are also writing a number of articles on IP and tech law in the Gulf for the benefit of our existing UK and other clients.   The first of these is my article on the DIFC Courts, a special jurisdiction within the Dubai International Financial Centre with its own laws in English and its own common law courts. Other articles which we shall publish in the next few weeks will discuss the law of confidence (trade secrets), data protection, domain names, licensing, passing off, restrictive covenants and other areas of IP and technology law.

If anybody wants to discuss any of these topics he or she should call me on +44 161 850 0080 if calling from outside the UK or 0800 862 0055 if calling from within or fill in my contact form.

About Jane Lambert

I am a barrister specializing in intellectual property, technology, media and entertainment and competition law. I specialize in helping SME (small and medium enterprises) protect and exploit their investment in brands, design, technology and the arts. SME require intellectual property (legal protection for their intellectual assets) at least as much as big business but their limited means restrict the way they can use it. Looking after such clients wisely requires skills and knowledge which have taken me years to learn.
