Deniz Celikel, the founder of Desi Patents and Trademarks Office has started to work when she was a high school student at various jobs including TRT and the first private radio station in Turkey. She has prepared and presented programs at radio and television stations and she has continued to work as a speaker and programmer until graduation from Middle East Technical University. After graduation she has worked as a statistician, programmer, software developer and web designer.
Mrs. Deniz Celikel is not only a registered patent and trademark attorney and Intellectual Property expert witness (Civil Courts for Intellectual and Industrial Property Rights) but also a computer programmer and web designer since 1990. She has written two software (DesiIPSoft® and DesiSoft®) especially for IP matters. Since her primary profession is IP matters we believe that the software that she has written is the most capable one comparing with the others all over the world. One of them is used for searching and viewing all published IP matters in Turkey. The other one is for only the clients’ files and it’s possible to prepare detailed reports about their applications.
In addition to be a sworn translator she is also a part-time lecturer in Turkey and abroad on SQL, software, data mining, database management and intellectual property rights.
Her book "Decisions of the European Court of Justice (ECJ) in Trademark Law and Customary Interpretation" has been published.
