Charlotte supports her clients in protecting their intellectual property, in particular in disputes and litigation relating to copyrights and designs as well as unfair competition. In particular she advises and represents national and international clients from the consumer goods sector (e.g. fashion, furniture, toys, food) in litigation regarding imitations of (well-known) product shapes and designs.
