The main area of focus of Ivan Rámeš is intellectual property. He specialises in a comprehensive definition of the IP strategy both in the Czech Republic and abroad, in industrial property right enforcement, counterfeited and pirated goods, parallel imports and the exhaustion of IP rights. Ivan also advises on copyright and deals with domain disputes and IP-related disputes in general and unfair competition. He is an expert in e-commerce, either in terms of IP protection, consumer protection (including administrative proceedings with regulators), personal data protection or marketing law, and an expert in franchising where he advises start-ups as well as larger companies and international corporations. Ivan Rámeš also lectures and publishes articles on these issues.
Before joining our law firm, Ivan worked at the Civil Law Department of the Municipal Court in Brno and at a law firm in Brno.
