Intellectual property (IP)

The number of lawsuits related to intellectual property rights has increased significantly in recent years. Tokio Marine Kiln's intellectual property (IP) insurance solutions are designed to protect an enterprise from the substantial financial risks involved with IP related disputes.

Our products also cover additional expenses incurred during an IP dispute such as legal fees, travel costs, expert witnesses, translations and product withdrawal charges.

Our maximum line size is USD25m or EUR25m.
