We are honored by MIP’s independent evaluation of our abilities and professional strengths and are grateful for the researchers’ efforts to gather data and offer to the public and the industry valuable insights regarding the professionals activating in this field.
Our team has been at the forefront of the developments of the Romanian business and legal system for the past 20 plus years and we strive to bring a business approach to all the assistance we offer to our clients, by functioning more as business partners by their side, not just their IP attorneys.
We have celebrated our first year of activity under this structure in June 2020 and the diversity of the projects in which we have been involved so far, serve, already as evidence of our competences and the trust our clients put in us. Whether IP management, IP contentious, or IP transactional, our team helps clients navigate their business of brands, technology, or science, irrespective of their industry.
Amongst our most notable projects in the past year we must mention our role as lead attorneys in the trademark infringement and unfair competition dispute in which we assist Sky International AG seeking a Pan – European injunction against the infringers of its rights over the SKY trademark. Also, we take pride in our involvement in the enforcement efforts of SKF and BMW on the Romanian market, where our team joins other reputed IP firms throughout the world in the brands battles against infringers.
Finally, our prosecution capabilities are best reviewed when looking at the efforts involved in the management of Bitdefender’s IPR portfolio or the assistance provided to Libra Internet Bank in securing its trademark rights in multiple jurisdictions, projects that required our simultaneous coordination of trademark filings, renewals, responding to office and oppositions in different jurisdictions throughout the world.
These are just a few of the projects that were reviewed by Managing IP during the research process that has led to Simion & Baciu being granted the honor to be named the Firm of the Year in Romania.
