Hiring a lawyer is an important decision that should not be based solely upon advertisements or recommendations. An experienced and capable lawyer could not only strengthen your business’s IPR strategy but also effectively assist you in enforcing your IPR rights against infringers. To find a lawyer that can help you with your IPR in the ASEAN region, you should consider contacting the lawyer’s association in your country, the directory of lawyers maintained by your country’s embassy or chamber of commerce in the relevant South-East Asian country, or an online law firm directory.Be sure to gather information and establish the facts about the problem before discussing with a lawyer. This will allow the lawyer to put the problem in context with the local laws and regulations.
