Top Team International Patent & Trademark Office
3F-2, No. 3-2, Park St., Nangang Dist., Taipei City 115, Taiwan, (R.O.C.).
TOP TEAM International Patent & Trademark Office (TOPTEAM) is one of the largest and most reputable specialty IP firms in Taiwan. With a staff of over 200, the firm provides services in all aspects of IP rights protection and has helped its clients secure tens of thousands of IP rights in Taiwan, the US, Europe, Japan, and other major markets, since 1985.
At TOPTEAM, our trademark practice supports brand protection in all areas over the full lifespan of a trademark. In the early stage, we counsel clients on trademark selection, adoption and filing strategies. Our experience handling complex foreign and domestic trademark issues allows us to capture potential risks and avoid unwanted office actions during prosecution or post-registration proceedings.
Led by knowledgeable and skilled counsel, our service team includes attorneys with substantial civil and administrative litigation expertise. That enables us to draw up a commercially sensible and cost-effective solution with clients seeking practical advice on trademark portfolio management, internal remedies, training, online brand protection, dispute resolution, or adequate measures to curb infringements of any sort.
Trademark owners are responsible for the enforcement of their rights. Nothing is too small for issues related to trademark abuse (e.g., cyber-squatting). With this in mind, TOPTEAM extends our full support to local and foreign companies in dealing with their trademarks’ unauthorized use and infringement risks. Our monitoring service detects and alerts on adversarial threats, either knowingly or unknowingly. Apart from that, we work closely with customs and IPR police in raids on counterfeits and assist clients in preserving the evidence and preparing the documents needed for further action.
Depending on the circumstance and clients’ best interests, we may send a cease-and-desist letter or takedown notice, apply for (preliminary) injunctions, seek monetary relief, file a civil action or take other approaches curtailing the likelihood of confusion caused by the wrongdoings.
At TOPTEAM, we genuinely listen to clients’ need and concerns, and team up together to safeguard their brand identity, reputation and market distinction connected to their marks. We work with businesses of various scales, from start-ups, and SMEs through world leading companies, across electronics, IC design, energy, entertainment, sporting goods, clothing, internet markets, online food ordering, and the press, among other industry sectors.
Our attorneys are also active in the International Trademark Association (INTA), International Bar Association (IBA), the International Association for the Protection of Intellectual Property (AIPPI), Asian Patent Attorneys Association (APAA) and Bar Associations in Taiwan. Aside from that, our practice has been recognized by leading legal media, including Chambers and Partners, The Legal 500, Managing IP, IAM 1000, World IP Review, Asia Business Law and others.
