IP & TMT

Practice Area

In today’s economies where Intellectual Property (IP) and Telecommunications, Media and Technology (TMT) are of increasing importance, focus is on data and brand protection. By combining legal protection, tax planning and financial optimisation, IP/TMT (re)structuring allows high returns on investment. The attractive tax regime for IP income introduced since 2007 in Luxembourg has led companies to consider the financial center as a key player in the field.

To meet clients’ demands, WILDGEN has created a dedicated department with a cutting-edge expertise on both litigation and non-litigation IP and TMT issues.

The Wildgen IP/TMT partner and team have achieved prestigious top rankings in the most authoritative directories to the legal profession in Europe. For the second year in a row, the Legal 500 EMEA guide has ranked Wildgen as a Tier-1 firm in IP and IT and described the team, led by the "outstandingPartner Emmanuelle Ragot, as "one of the best IT/IP practices in Luxembourg" that provides "‘accurate and practical advice’ across a myriad IP and TMT matters including on data protection, e-commerce issues and trade mark infringement." Emmanuelle Ragot is also top-ranked as leading individual (Band 1) in "Intellectual Property & TMT" by the last edition of the Chambers & Partners for her regulatory knowledge and experience in advising start-ups.
