Overview of Our Intellectual Property Practice
We are widely recognised for the strength, depth and range of our intellectual property (IP) law practice, which is unparalleled in Israel for its level of expertise and the quality of its services. Among the major commercial law firms in Israel, S. Horowitz & Co. stands out as the only firm capable of providing full and comprehensive services in the IP arena, and to be consistently ranked in the first tier by the major legal directories. In this context, The Legal 500 has paid homage to our IP practice, describing it as “a rare phenomenon in Israel, a full-service firm offering a full range of services in IP litigation, licensing and commercialisation, prosecution and enforcement”, and we were described in the WTR 1000 as “the premier IP firm in Israel”.
We advise companies and rights holders operating in a wide spectrum of industry sectors on all aspects of IP, both contentious and non-contentious, spanning from research and development to commercialisation and licensing of the protected product. The firm’s highly talented and respected IP team provides hands-on strategic advice to both international and domestic clients, and guides them as required with regard to the use, enforcement and protection of their valuable IP, with particular regard to technological developments, concomitant with today’s rapidly-changing marketplace.
We are immensely proud to be associated with the S. Horowitz Institute for IP in memory of Dr. Amnon Goldenberg, a research institute run by the Tel Aviv University Faculty of Law. The Institute aims to promote the progress of IP-related law and practices by supporting research and the study of IP, facilitating the exchange of ideas both locally and globally, and offering policymakers unbiased input. The Institute’s mission is primarily to facilitate innovative, interdisciplinary research, corroborating the fact that the law in general, and IP in particular, are social tools.
