When it comes to this specialised area of IP, defending and attacking IP rights, you need a strong and proactive team on your side.
Our attorneys have considerable experience in defending our clients’ patents and trade marks, and challenging those of their competitors, in the UK, the EU and Europe.
Working with clients, from multi-nationals to start-ups, across a myriad of sectors, we have earned our reputation by successfully managing everything from large portfolios of oppositions down to defending a single patent.
We regularly represent clients across a range of technological areas at the European Patent Office (EPO) and are experienced advocates before the EPO Opposition Divisions and Boards of Appeal.
Our experienced patent attorney teams are equally skilled at representing clients spanning a vast array of business areas with their oppositions and appeals. Our Munich office, manned by a German-qualified attorney, is conveniently located a short distance from the European Patent Office and the team are therefore on hand to deal with face-to-face meetings with examiners or representatives at the EPO.
We have proven experience of handling all aspects of trade mark opposition and cancellation proceedings before the UK Intellectual Property Office (UKIPO), the European Union Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO), as well as related appeals before the High Court and the Court of Justice of the EU.
As with all our work, our dispute-related services are delivered in the context of the client’s commercial setting and business objectives throughout. We always remember that our services must work in tandem with, and add value to, your day-to-day business so that you can maximise your competitive edge.
