Crystal Lagoons has hired law firm Dentons, to safeguard its patented technology in the MENA region.

Dentons will be in charge of monitoring markets across the region to spot potential infringements of Crystal Lagoons' intellectual property including patents, trademarks, designs, copyrights and domain names.

Crystal Lagoons currently holds patents for its innovative technology in 160 countries which allows for the construction and maintenance of unlimited size bodies of crystalline water at very low costs.

With five high profile crystalline lagoon projects either up-and-running or under development in the North African tourism hotspot, and 50 further projects spread across the MENA region, the agreement charges the law firm with responsibility for exploration, monitoring, auditing and defense of Crystal Lagoons’ patent in any future lawsuits.

Carlos Salas, regional director Middle East, Crystal Lagoons, said: "The company has experienced strong growth over its seven year existence, counting over 300 urban, tourism, public and industrial projects at different stages of development in its vast global portfolio. The company has enjoyed particular success in Egypt where it has five projects to its name including the world’s largest crystalline lagoon at Citystars Sharm El Sheikh, plus Swanlake North Coast, Porto Lagoons, Radamis and Bo Islands, and a further 10 future projects under consideration.”
