We represented a leading Czech-Slovak advertising and digital services client in claiming damages from copyright infringement, in drafting Work Contracts (software, graphics, website design etc.), in drafting Licensing and Sublicensing Agreements and in recovering claims resulting from these contracts.
Working with this client gave us valuable legal experience related to creativity in their field and has made us better IP lawyers.
Igor LučanskýCEO, MAISON D’IDÉE Prague s.r.o.
What was the most challenging part of this legal project for you personally?
„Trying to clarify the specifics of our industry, especially the licensing terms and protecting us not only from the client but also from the contractors who are usually part of the work. It was important to explain the business model clearly enough. The challenge was to accept that there are shortcomings on our side as well, to realize them and fix them.“
What is key in evaluating the success of a law firm's work?
„Speed and clarity in communication - we don't like legalese. With contracts, we liked the fact that the counterparties had minimal comments and mostly accepted them to the extent given. I also appreciate when contracts are written in a mutually beneficial way so that both we and the partner can swiftly confirm them.“
What made the cooperation with MATHISON special for you and how do you rate it?
„It was specific for us mainly in the fact that for the first time we entrusted entire legal agenda to one law firm and we did it simultaneously for a Czech and a Slovak entity. What was specific was the level of trust with which we opened up about our internal matters. However, we understood that this is what our clients want in our business and we tried it out. To this day we have no regrets and look forward to working with them again.“
