Litigation is expensive and not a step to be taken lightly, however there are times when it is the only available option, or when it is the best option in the particular circumstances.
We can assist you in making the most of your rights by whatever means necessary. We act for our clients at the UK Intellectual Property Office and UK courts to initiate revocation proceedings against UK patents, and advise our clients where they are facing legal proceedings from third parties. We can also act to enforce your patent rights against third parties, where you are concerned about infringement.
When it is in your best interests, and in certain court or patent office proceedings, we will represent you ourselves. On other occasions, our close working relationships with leading specialist solicitors (attorneys) and barristers (advocates or trial lawyers) give you access to a powerful extended legal team.
Many disputes are eventually settled without the need to pursue legal proceedings to a conclusion. We have wide experience in negotiating settlements for our clients and can guide you skilfully through this challenging process.
