Domain name

What is a domain name?

Used as an internet address, a domain name is a distinctive sign of a company, like a trademark, and for this reason it is compulsory to proceed with a domain name reservation.

How are these rights acquired?

Before reserving a domain name, it is advisable to perform a search in order to make sure that it is available.

Your domain names are managed in our Firm's databases, and their reservation, monitoring and, if necessary, their renewal is taken care of.

A strategy to protect domain names is developed, and advice is provided on the reservation of new domain names depending on your activities, on the desired geographical range, and on the situation of your competitors.

Direct access to your portfolio of domain names is available via our website.

Defending your rights

Once your domain name has been reserved, we recommend organising monitoring of the domain name in order to detect reservations of domain names that might be identical or similar. When a domain name is detected, opportunities for legal proceedings and/or for an amicable settlement with the adverse party are analysed.

Our Team assists you with transfer procedures for disputed domain names, negotiates their repatriation and assists you in defending your rights before the courts.

The Firm supports you in setting up valuation and operating strategies of your rights, and assists you in contractual matters.
