These days all companies need to consider their current and targeted position in the area of intellectual property – whether to protect their technical edge, prevent infringement of IP rights or conquer a new market segment. “Building and managing an IP portfolio” needs to be an active process, not just an empty catchphrase.
A complex subject requires comprehensive experience and intelligible advice. Employees' rights to recognition of their invention disclosure and to appropriate remuneration must be respected for a company not to lose the corresponding patent. We help you recognise and avoid the potential pitfalls to ensure your freedom of action.
From simple licence agreements to complex cross-licences, from coexistence agreements to “peace treaties” in infringement proceedings: contract consulting and drafting is part of our daily work. This includes cooperation, research and know-how contracts. We apply our well-honed instincts and foresight to work out the optimum result. And when contract negotiations come to a standstill, we are not afraid to take legal action to defend your rights.
