Acemark Intellectual Property is a boutique IP firm set up in 1999 by Amir Syamsudin. Mr Syamsudin is widely known as the founder of the Amir Syamsudin & Partners Law Offices – to which the firm is affiliated – and most notably was the minister of law and human rights in Indonesia from 2011 to 2014. To Mr Syamsudin, the firm is the embodiment of his concern for the escalating infringement of IP rights in Indonesia. This has been vividly reflected in the firm’s philosophy, which is to provide high-quality legal services in a prompt, responsible and reliable manner. Taking this into account, Acemark has become one of the leading IP firms in Indonesia, with considerable experience in working for both domestic and overseas clients – ranging from individuals and small and medium-sized enterprises to multinational corporations worldwide – and has bridged the gap between Indonesian law enforcement and its overseas clients’ demands.
Acemark possesses extensive resources and know-how to cover a wide range of services and handle substantial and complex cases. With a team comprising five registered IP consultants and 50 professionals, the firm provides extensive services in prosecution and enforcement in all aspects of intellectual property and domain names. Acemark’s attorneys have the skills and insight to guide clients’ interests effectively throughout the entire IP lifecycle – from initial development through to successful monetisation, avoidance of competitors’ rights and, if necessary, spirited enforcement or defence in the courtroom. The firm has been entrusted by multinational companies to handle works in the fields of chemistry, biology, pharmaceuticals, semiconductors, and mechanicals.
Following 19 years of establishment, Acemark has become a fully fledged IP firm with wide-ranging specialisation in, among other things, data verification, search, investigation, watching, prosecution of both contentious and non-contentious IP matters, renewal, anti-counterfeiting, litigation, licensing, cautionary notices, domain names and food and drug administration permits. With dogged determination and perseverance instilled in each of its outstanding employees, the firm has proven to cater successfully to clients’ distinctive needs and has constantly provided them with well-founded and rigorous outcomes.
The firm has successfully represented multinational clients in regaining their passed-off marks through negotiations and cancellation actions, as well as taking action against infringement. Recently, Acemark won a non-use cancellation action on behalf of a Korean pharmaceutical company and a cancellation action based on bad faith on behalf of a reputable Korean apparel company. The firm has also successfully represented US publishers in copyright and trademark infringement cases and UK companies in patent and trademark infringement cases. The firm has a high rate of success in registering and opposing trademarks.
Acemark has been ranked in the top tier of IP consultancy and service, and has received several remarkable awards issued by IP societies. To keep up to date with IP issues in an era of rapid globalisation, the firm always demonstrates great enthusiasm to be an innovative IP firm in Indonesia and to perform ceaseless improvements, while promoting and raising awareness of the importance of intellectual property in day-to-day life.
The firm has grown, but the underlying commitment remains as it has always been: to care for the IP interests of our clients to the highest professional standard.
