Geographical Indications Enforcement

Deris recognizes the value of geographical indications as being important IP assets. Hence, we have developed in-depth expertise for the protection and the litigation of these rights. Deris has represented foreign consortia and rightsholders. Moreover, we obtained foreign geographical indication protection in the very first litigation for such enforcement of indications registration in Turkey.
