Turkey Ankara Patent Bureau Ltd

Being one of the oldest firms in Turkey, Ankara Patent provides services in every aspect of intellectual property. With the experience and knowledge of three generations, Ankara Patent provides a road map for the protection of IP assets from the stage of idea creation to the end of the lifecycle of products and services, including commercialisation.

Ankara Patent has a strong influence on the development of intellectual property in Turkey. Hayri Dericioğlu founded Ankara Patent in 1964 after working as an IP directorate and an industry inspector under the Ministry of Industry. He wrote one of the first articles and books in the field of intellectual property and contributed to the development of IP literature and terminology.

Chairman of the board of directors Kaan Dericioğlu played an active role on former patent, trademark and design decree-laws. He and the other board members teach in universities and share their experience and expertise in the IP field.

Ankara Patent maintains a leading position with its unique system of analysis, evaluation and recommendation, and continues to create valued partnerships with all of its clients. Ankara Patent has offices in Ankara and Istanbul, and a team of 100 engineers, lawyers and business consultants.
