Intellectual property


Ivan Rámeš

I've always liked photography, fast cars and new technology, which naturally led me to pursue a career in law in the areas of intellectual property - with a particular fondness for anti-counterfeiting, and information technology. Slightly outside these two fields, my other specialisations are consumer law, unfair competition, and contractual law focused on customer-supplier relations. If you can't find me in the office, I'm probably travelling and taking pictures in America's national parks.

You'll find me everywhere that smacks of the Netherlands and Belgium. And it doesn't matter whether it's culture, sport, gastronomy or law. Besides fries, herrings and cycling, it is also one of the most innovative regions in the world. I specialise in intellectual property law in modern (digital) society and I have a special interest in artificial intelligence and virtual reality. In my free time, however, I prefer activities where I don't encounter any technology (i.e. all outdoor sports in nature).

As soon as I got the opportunity to do a one-year postgraduate course in European law in the Netherlands after my studies at a law faculty in Prague, I knew immediately that I wanted to specialise in international trade law, technology law and intellectual property, as well as related aspects of competition law. I started in the Prague office of a global law firm where I was also interested in telecoms and technology transactions, as we were going through the boom, and I had the opportunity to work briefly in London. In 2001, we founded our law firm Havel & Partners and I continued in this specialisation. After 2008, I formed our dedicated Commercial IP and IT advisory group, where we are now fully engaged in all areas of intellectual property, digital economy, e-commerce, fintech, drones, autonomous cars, blockchain and technology transactions and all possible types of commercial contractual relationships, both domestic and cross-border.

While most children are given picture books as their first reading, I entered the world of language and stories through ancient Greek myths. And there is no story that does not have its origin in history. That's not the only reason I started building my own story, inspired by the previous two generations, on my family's tradition of studying law. However, my love for history and stories has remained, so my professional interest is mainly in copyright law, and since I like to look for parallels, I am also close to EU private international law. In my spare time I like to play basketball or board games, practice historical fencing or plan trips to explore.

For a long time, the concept of IP meant nothing to me; apart from my duties at the faculty, I had not even come across a trademark, patent, or copyright. Because of my interest in this area, I had to travel to Germany, where I spent several years absorbing knowledge about patents, trademarks and designs in the practice of an international law firm. The world of IP is a rapidly evolving area in which there is always something to look forward to and I'm glad to be a part of it.

I still remember the day when my father brought home a telephone modem and I first heard the loud tones that this fascinating device made when connecting to the Internet. At that time I didn't know yet what all was possible thanks to this playing box, but after more and more intensive research with the care of a prudent manager, I gradually got to know all those internets that Mrs Věra Pohlová wanted to ban (Metro daily, 17 September 1999). Since I never excelled in mathematics or physics due to my legal background, law was an obvious choice for me to connect these two worlds. Currently, I specialise in information technology and intellectual property law, with a focus on the legal aspects of these areas in the context of the Internet. I like to spend my free time travelling, practising martial arts and cooking, but I also enjoy a good book or film.
