Intellectual property is the legal term referred to the exclusive right of the private person or legal entity for results of intellectual activity. Under this category a number of assets are considered such as brand and trademark, clients’ database, corporate management strategy, certain corporate documentation etc.

One of the considerably common ways to protect the right on intellectual property is a civil suit; the suit procedure includes the proof of the infringement, reimbursement of the complainant and the legal ban to further action violating the intellectual property right. The suits for such cases are complex as a rule; the specialists in this area are expected to be knowledgeable both in law and in modern science and technology.
