The United States Trade Representative (USTR) releases a “Watch List” of countries that do not provide effective intellectual property protection.  While the severity of these problems may be worse depending on the country, the extent to which these problems damage your company can be mitigated. One way we mitigate the problems faced by our clients is through our international contacts.  Through our aggressive overseas networking, we have built a large network of contacts in many of the countries the USTR lists on the “Priority Watch list.” The eleven countries listed on the “Priority Watch List” are Algeria, Argentina, Chile, China, India, Indonesia, Kuwait, Russia, Thailand Ukraine, and Venezuela.  We have contacts with IP firms in the Ukraine, China, India, Russia, and Kuwait. We are prepared to help expand your business into these markets.
