Dolby

Dolby revolutionises the science of sight and sound through our innovative research and engineering, empowering creatives to elevate their stories, and offering fans unforgettable experiences in Dolby.

We’re the rain on the roof in a movie. The music flowing through your earbuds when you’re at the gym. The footsteps lurking behind you in a video game. The voice of a colleague on a call who seems to be right next to you. The sight of a breathtakingly bright and vivid sunset on your TV.

Even as we’ve become a global company, Dolby Laboratories continues to reflect Ray Dolby’s values. Here, science meets art. And high tech goes far beyond computer code.

Founded in 1965 and headquartered in San Francisco, Dolby has grown into a leading global innovator and developer of audio, imaging and voice technologies for cinema, home theaters, PCs, mobile phones, and games.

Office Freylinger

In 1966, Ernest T. Freylinger laid the foundations of our present industrial property consulting office in Luxembourg.

Over the following years, Ernest T. Freylinger managed to gain the confidence of important clients in Luxembourg and created business partnerships with other IP offices, mainly in Luxembourg and in Belgium.

These collaborations allowed the office to expand its services on an international basis. Office Freylinger has continued to grow and now relies on a wide range of national and international clients, from the corner shopkeeper up to the multinational company.

At the turn of the century, the rejuvenation of the staff, new openings in the fields of industrial property as well as a constant improvement and variety of the provided services have contributed to place Office Freylinger as the main and largest Luxembourg IP Office.

Medicines Patent Pool

About Us

At the Medicines Patent Pool, we aim to increase access to, and facilitate the development of, life-saving medicines for low- and middle-income countries through an innovative approach to voluntary licensing and patent pooling. So wherever people live, they have rapid access to effective treatments.

MPP Culture and Values

At MPP we are committed to making sure novel quality medicines are available and affordable in the shortest of time for those who would otherwise be left behind.

In order to accomplish our mission, we strive for excellence in our work and foster a positive organisational culture through transparency and open communication. We hold ourselves accountable to the highest standards, respecting individuality and encouraging innovation. We offer support to our partners as we share our learnings with the aim of accelerating access to treatment. In all what we do, we all do our best to stretch our own ability and capacity.

History

MPP was established in 2010 by Unitaid. Its vision was that non-exclusive voluntary licensing through a public health agency would enable more people in LMICs to access affordable treatments. Since then, MPP has succeeded in revolutionising the access landscape for new and essential treatments in resource-limited settings.

MPP started its work in HIV, where there were access gaps in relation to several new antiretroviral medicines. There needed to be an established mechanism for licensing under public health-oriented terms and conditions that would enable manufacturers to develop quality-assured generic products, and make them available where people could not have accessed them otherwise.

Today, more people can access better HIV treatments at affordable prices, and much faster than ever before. For instance, millions of people around the world have now gained access to dolutegravir (DTG) and DTG-based treatments at a much lowered price. You can read more on MPP’s contribution to making DTG available to people who need it most.

Yusarn Audrey

Yusarn Audrey is a pioneer IP strategy and law firm in Singapore.

In 1999, when Yusarn Audrey first started, very few people in Singapore had ever heard of an IP specialist law firm. We were among the first law firms set up to serve clients in this specialised field.

In fact, we set out to do more than that, we wanted to be a law firm that created value for our clients. At that time, we had a vision of the future of business and realised that the most successful companies and organisations will be those who harness their intellectual assets, those intangible qualities that make them uniquely powerful in the marketplace and the community, and use them to achieve their mission. We saw that our role as IP professionals gave us a unique opportunity to add value: to help our clients use IP strategically for their business and mission. The development of IP in Singapore and around the world and the transformation of Singapore into a regional and global IP hub since our inception has confirmed our foresight.

From the beginning, we organised our firm and our services around this central idea: that Intellectual Property is a powerful business asset and must be managed strategically. Everything that we did for our clients must help them create, protect and harness this valuable resource – IP. Where other law firms continued to compartmentalise their services into different departments, we integrated our teams. At Yusarn Audrey, IP lawyers work with patent agents, corporate lawyers and litigation lawyers to ensure a seamless delivery of IP and legal services around the single objective – creating, protecting and realising value from our clients’ IP assets.

In addition to this, we have developed new IP strategic advisory services as tools to ensure that our clients’ IP activities support and enhance their business strategies and objectives. By helping them to begin managing their IP in alignment with their business and mission, our clients have changed the way they look at IP. No longer just an expense, they now see IP as an asset and an investment for the future growth of their organisations.

Today, Yusarn Audrey is one of the top IP law firms in Singapore. We have been consulted by companies, research institutions, universities, statutory boards, and government agencies both in Singapore and in other parts of Asia, and have helped them create new possibilities using their intellectual assets.

This is what we live for in Yusarn Audrey, and what makes us excited and passionate about our work: igniting possibilities for our clients using IP.

FRKelly

At FRKelly we offer a wide range of services relating to patents, trademarks, designs, copyright, and other intellectual property matters. But really, we offer a lot more than that because our passion about our work is matched only by yours.

An illustration of this is the fact that during the WWII years it was often extremely difficult and sometimes even impossible to obtain renewal instructions from abroad. In spite of this FRKelly clients were very pleasantly surprised to learn that their Trade Mark portfolios were still intact after the war because renewal fees had been paid despite the absence of instructions.

This, in essence, is the standard and quality of service that FRKelly still stands for and aspires to today. Our commitment and dedication to each and every client is our hallmark and guarantee.

Why FRKelly?

With teams based in Dublin, Cork and Belfast, we offer a personalised, client-focused approach to provide practical and effective legal advice, tailored to the needs of individual businesses.

While our reputation for knowledge and integrity has evolved over 90 years, we also believe in being accessible and personable, delivering exceptional levels of service.

We are globally recognised patent and trade mark attorneys representing the European intellectual property interests of a number of Top 50 US corporations and the worldwide intellectual property interests of many large multi-national companies.

We provide a cost effective, specialised counsel and undertake the preparation, registration, and prosecution of applications for patents, trade marks and other forms of registered IP.

And as a partner-led firm we love nothing more than to develop long term relationships with our clients by attaining a rigorous understanding of their business needs, so large or small, we can guarantee that every client receives an attentive and responsive service.
