Anthonia Ghalamkarizadeh advises her clients, many of them owners of famous brands, on all aspects of trademark law and unfair competition. Her client base spans software and online services, consumer electronics and entertainment, as well as beauty care and healthcare. She has extensive experience in IP litigation and advises her clients on all steps of the way. Her work covers strategic advice on obtaining and protecting trademarks and other intellectual property rights to their enforcement against imitations, misleading and false advertising and other forms of misuse.

Anthonia oversees the global trademark enforcement work for several of her clients, among them Mozilla and trivago. The integrated online and offline enforcement of her clients' IP rights is a special focus of her work, and to that end she collaborates with colleagues in many jurisdictions on a daily basis.

Anthonia regularly publishes on current trademark, online and unfair competition topics, exploring the legal implications of current market realities such as ad-blocking and the effective protection against online scams. She is a member of the Marques "Class 46" team of trademark bloggers and writes for the firm's LimeGreen IP knowledge site and for external legal publications. Anthonia also is an active member of the European Legal Network of the Free Software Foundation in Europe.
