Having a global online strategy is essential. Cybersquatters are a significant threat to your online reputation, security, and revenue streams. Our internet domain name team has advised clients in this area for more than 15 years.
Domain name portfolios inevitably cover a multitude of countries. Your enforcement efforts must be global. At the cutting edge of internet-related branding issues, we helped to develop appropriate rights protection mechanisms within ICANN for the new gTLD program.
Together, we will make sure you have the right strategy and strike the right balance between defensive registrations, monitoring, and recuperation.
