Anthonia Ghalamkarizadeh is curious and innovative, always looking beyond and thinking ahead. She puts these qualities to work for her IPMT clients across the globe when she advises them on their global IP enforcement, brand strategy and online enforcement.

Anthonia advises her clients, many of them owners of famous brands, on all aspects of trademark law and unfair competition. The integrated cross-border and online enforcement of her clients' IP rights is a focus of her work. Her client base spans software and internet services, consumer electronics and entertainment, beauty care and automotive. She has extensive experience in global brand enforcement strategy and litigation and advises her clients on all steps of the way: From strategic advice on obtaining and protecting trademarks and other intellectual property rights to their enforcement against imitations, scams, misleading and false advertising and other forms of misuse. She oversees the global trademark enforcement work for several of her clients, such as Mozilla. To that end she collaborates with colleagues in many jurisdictions on a daily basis.

Anthonia is keenly curious and constantly explores the legal implications of current market trends and realities such as e-sports, ad-blocking, the effective protection against online scams. She is strongly engaged in the firm's legal tech initiatives, including Total Brand Care, Collaborate and Engage, and always looks for innovative ways to improve client advice, team work and collaboration.
