Intellectual property and information technologies
Modern age calls for innovations and use of state-of-the-art procedures. Research and development are, in general, very costly. Clients therefore need to protect the results of their creative activities, including by patents, trademarks or utility models.
Intellectual property as well as information technology are important practice areas in SEMANČÍN & PARTNERS.

We also helped in connection with patents and trademarks. Among other things, we drafted complex contractual documents for the author and designer of K1 Attack racing special and Praga Racing Car in connection with the design, manufacture and testing of a racing special prototype.
