The 2024 review

“SKC has the expertise and sufficient manpower to carry out complicated IP rights protection operations.” “Professional, resourceful, honest and collaborative”, SKC Law has a strong reputation for its clear communication style and rich expertise. The sizeable team of almost 50 IP lawyers, in-house investigators, consultants and paralegals provides holistic trademark assistance, dispensing commercially savvy, comprehensive advice on all aspects of trademark matters. With a tight connection to the relevant authorities and a rich knowledge, enforcement head Purnomo Suryomurcito is the first point of contact for marquee clients seeking to protect their brands.

“Purnomo is an excellent and very strong professional for enforcement matters. Well established in Indonesia, he identifies targets and coordinates law enforcement agencies to execute nationwide enforcement campaigns successfully. He carries out all the operations – including but not limited to investigations, raid actions, post-raid follow-ups and product destruction – in a professional manner, with timely updates.”

On the dispute resolution and advisory front, strategically minded Andrew Conduit has rich cross-cultural awareness and is an invaluable ally to international players seeking effective aid in complex matters. He recently worked with Suryomurcito and seasoned contentious matters specialist Krishna Dibyatara on anti-infringement raid for Nike, which led to the seizure of over 30,000 pairs of counterfeit shoes. Commercially savvy prosecution and litigation virtuoso Nidya Kalangie is the source of flexible advice on complex matters, succeeding in complicated, fast-changing situations. With the group for over a decade, senior associate Bagus Lestanto assists clients in prosecution and litigation matters; he recently worked with Kalangie and Conduit on overcoming office actions for GoTo.”

The 2023 review

“IP-focused SKC Law prides itself on its high-quality solutions and being exceptionally easy to work with. Keeping patron satisfaction at the forefront, the firm adopts a flexible, responsive and clear approach to ensure a pleasant experience for all involved. While the outfit is a formidable presence across the whole spectrum of IP matters, its contentious practice is further strengthened by an in-house investigation team, and a close connection to government authorities. The latter is often leveraged by seasoned Purnomo Suryomurcito, a cosmopolitan expert renowned for his effective, airtight enforcement strategies.”

“Equally impressive in contentious matters is Andrew Conduit, a multilingual foreign advocate whose unique perspective allows him to perfectly anticipate the needs of international entities. Together with Suryomurcito and with close cooperation of the authorities, Conduit broke distribution chains of counterfeit corn seeds that were harming the local farming communities. Almost 7,000kg of counterfeit successfully seed was seized on behalf of SKC’s client, Syngenta Participations. The two practitioners’ other enforcement project resulted in the seizure of almost 25,000 bottles of counterfeit Yamaha motorcycle lubricant. Well-experienced in both IP and commercial issues, Nidya Kalangie is appreciated for her business acumen and sought out by big names across all fields. She recently advised AstraZeneca on brand protection, and helped FIFA succeed in oppositions.”
