Intellectual Property


Intellectual property is undoubtedly one of the fastest growing areas of commercial law practice in a modern business environment. Once something has been created, it is imperative that its creator ensure that their intellectual property is legally protected.

Like many other jurisdictions, intellectual property rights in Thailand most commonly consist of copyright, patents, design patents, trademarks, and trade secrets.
