Amira Nabila Budiyano
Senior Associate

Amira’s practice is rather diverse, albeit with a core focus on IP, privacy and IT laws. Amira has significant experience in the various facets of IP practice, both contentious and non-contentious side. She currently administers and manages local and overseas clients’ IP portfolios through prosecuting and handling local and overseas patent, trade mark and design applications. On the patent side, her practice includes conducting worldwide searches to determine the patentability of an invention, drafting, preparation and prosecution of patent applications. On the contentious side of her IP practice, Amira is able to and has represented clients in opposition, and invalidation proceedings before the Trade Marks Registry and other IP-related disputes before the High Court. Her practice also includes providing advice on IP commercialisation, such as assignment/franchise agreements, IP due diligence and licensing matters. Apart from that, her practice also involves other general corporate advisory work (related to IP rights or otherwise) involving confidential information and trade secrets amongst others and several regulatory and technology-related issues.

Amira was also previously on the Panel of Lawyers under the PDPA Legal Advice Scheme administered by the Law Society, which has since ended. She has advised various educational institutions (both public and private), associations, and other private entities on their obligations vis-à-vis the fairly recent implemented data protection regime. Amira also advises various Statutory Boards and other foundations and organisations on a plethora of legal matters, ranging from collaboration and procurement documentation, to other contractual and regulatory issues.

She has also advised several multinationals on their Singapore office hires and the offering of share option schemes apart from reviewing their agreements in place, and various companies on core issues under employment law including employee leave benefits, working hours and CPF issues amongst others.

Amira is fluent in English and Malay, and conversant in French. She enjoys practicing hot yoga and learning about different cultures and way of life..
