Practice Areas

Intellectual Property and Privacy

Rarely do we encounter a case that no longer requires some counsel in the field of intellectual property and information technology. This is why GKH has been continuously investing in developing its practice in these areas. We have brought in designated clients in the technology area, and provided support to GKH clients in major cross-border deals for some of the largest and most known companies in Israel and abroad, in addition to on-going counsel.


The GKH IP team offers a wide range of IP services, from commercializing IP rights and licensing to trade mark prosecution and design registration. As GKH is one of the leading firms in the hi-tech sector in Israel, the IP team is a leader in the field, and regularly represents internet, software and life sciences companies The volume and high profile of our work in this field, top-tier expertise of our team, and legal innovativeness have earned GKH's IP team an outstanding reputation.


The GKH IP team advises clients, both large and small, from Israel and abroad, on managing commercialization and protection of their intellectual property portfolio as well as defending against the possibility or allegations of infringement. Our team has extensive expertise in all transactional aspects of IP, including complex licensing, asset purchase agreements and the IP aspects of major mergers and acquisitions on behalf of both companies and investors, particularly in intellectual property asset acquisitions and cross licensing arrangements:
