As the economy and society continue to grow in Taiwan, the development of a business competing in an industry with highly concentrated labor will be limited due to the increasing costs of materials and manufacturing and the newly emerging markets in China and Southeast Asia. To cope with the new knowledge-based economy, a company is advised to upgrade by moving toward the knowledge-concentrated industries of the future. Since Intellectual Property Rights (IPRs) form the core values in this knowledge era, whether a company holds the advantage to compete is determined by the “quantity & quality” of its IPRs.
Recognizing that IPRs, which include patents, trademarks, trade secrets, copyrights, integrated circuit (IC) layout, and know-how, will become the critical assets of a company, PwC Legal has launched a talented team with experts specializing in the Intellectual Property field to the effect that we can provide IP-related professional services for clients. We are confident that by employing our two-pronged approach, i.e., passively in preventing the occurrence of infringement and positively by engaging in technology transfer negotiation, IPR securitization and IPR taxation planning, we will gain the greatest profit for our clients.
PwC Legal provides all-inclusive and instant services combining IP management and law, through collaboraton with PwC Taiwan, Landwell and PwC, which all deliver professional solutions of the highest technical quality. Such services are designed specifically for high-tech industries.
