Introduction

The predecessor of our law firm was founded in 2005 as “Kocsis Law Firm” by Dr. Kocsis M. Tamás (LL. M., Humboldt Universität zu Berlin).  Since  November 2011 we have been working under the name Kocsis & Szénássy Law Firm as a general partnership.

Our law firm is a member or has associated membership in the following organisations:

Hungarian Intellectual Property Organisation, Magyar Iparjogvédelmi Egyesület – MIE (www.mie.org.hu),

Trade Mark Association,Védjegyegyesület (www.vedjegyegyesulet.hu),

European Communities Trade Mark Association – ECTA (www.ecta.org),

Deutsche Vereinigung für Gewerblichen Rechtsschutz und Urheberrecht – GRUR (www.grur.de).

The law firm is specialized in intellectual property protection, especially in the area of industrial property, with special regard to trade marks and European Union Trade Marks. As far as trade marks are concerned, we provide general legal advice on the absolute and relative grounds of refusal and opposition procedures, as well as proceedings in invalidity and revocation of a European Union Trade Mark, a national or an international trade mark.

When needed, we carry out trade mark research analysis intended to find not only earlier trade mark holders but identical or similar earlier trade marks as well. A separate area in our expertise is the trade mark infringement and the violation of industrial property rights. The partners of the law firm represent primarily the interests of the trade mark owners.

In addition, the members of the law firm have significant experience in the law of designs, and Community Designs as well. The Members’ areas of expertise also include legal advice relating to branding issues, since we understand the importance of the selection and registration of such a sign or logo which can be later easily protected legally.

Additionally, the lawyers of the law firm provide legal services in the following areas: corporate law, labour law, civil litigation, real estate law, construction law, consumer protection, competition law, infringement based on the kind of the goods, copyright, law of advertising, software right and neighbouring rights to copyright.

Our main goal is to provide legal advice to our clients quickly and effectively, always keeping their interests in mind.

The law firm is located in Budapest, XIV. district, in a free parking area, not far from the intersection of Mogyoródi and Róna street.
