Georgia is part of the international IP protection legal framework by being a member of the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO). This provides a number of opportunities for foreign businesses to invest in the IP sector in the country. Considering its strategic geographic location, membership in the World Trade Organization (WTO), and the Vienna Sale of Goods Convention (CISG), the Georgian legal system is, in many aspects, harmonized with international best practices in the field of IP and sales law.
Our team has experience advising various clients on different IP and commercial transactions matters, including the design of contracts, risk assessment, and dispute resolution. Such experience includes IP rights due diligence as part of a legal due diligence project for energy, agriculture, banking, and industrial manufacturing business companies; representation of an architectural design company in Georgian courts; representation of a construction materials wholesaler in Georgian courts related to a trademark infringement case; representation in Georgian courts and full legal advisory of a software development company, etc.
