A patent is a legal document that grants the holder exclusive rights to manufacture, use, and sell an invention for a set period of time. In Turkey, patents are regulated by the Turkish Patent and Trademark Office (TPTO). To obtain a patent, an application must be filed with the TPTO, and the invention must meet certain criteria, including novelty, inventive step, and industrial applicability. The lawyers at Turk Fortune can provide legal advice and representation in patent applications and disputes.



A trademark is a sign or symbol used to distinguish goods or services of one business from those of another. In Turkey, trademarks are regulated by the TPTO. To obtain a trademark, an application must be filed with the TPTO, and the mark must be distinctive and not in conflict with existing trademarks. The lawyers at Turk Fortune can assist with trademark registration, infringement disputes, and other trademark-related legal issues.


Copyright law in Turkey protects original works of authorship, including literary, artistic, and musical works. Copyright protection arises automatically upon creation of the work, but registration is recommended to provide additional legal protection. The lawyers at Turk Fortune can provide legal advice on copyright registration, licensing, and enforcement.

Other Forms of Intellectual Property

In addition to patents, trademarks, and copyrights, there are other forms of intellectual property that may require legal protection, including trade secrets and industrial designs. The lawyers at Turk Fortune can provide legal advice and representation in these areas as well.
