Fifth Civil Court of First Instance to Handle IP Cases

The Syrian Ministry of Justice has recently announced that all IP related legal cases should be handled by the Fifth Civil Court of First Instance in lieu of the FIRST Commercial Court of First Instance.

This Ministerial decision was stipulated on February 24, 2018, in order to organise the back log and work load of legal cases being currently handled by courts in Syria. The Fifth Civil Court of First Instance will handle appeals against trademark registrar’s refusal decisions, oppositions against registration of trademarks, counter oppositions cases as well as infringement and cancellation actions.
