Intellectual property significantly influences your business value.

VILGERTS, Associate Kalīne Ozola recently arrived from a week-long summer course on Intellectual Property Rights (IPR) at the Academy of European Law in Trier, Germany. The course included lectures and workshops covering a wide range of IP-related issues delivered by excellent professionals from several EU institutions, as well as top law firms.

This experience reconfirmed importance of IPR protection in order to build successful business. Cases shared by lecturers, as well as participants, showed that many businesses are still lazy in protecting their IP.
