Technical-legal opinions prepared by us almost always have a key and strategic importance for the client.
From a situation of legal or technical uncertainty the company or individual has nothing but a slow-down or waste of commercial chance.
That's why we put at your service our expertise and experience in the field of intellectual property, with the aim of solving the problem, turning an initial disadvantage into a competitive advantage, or at least minimizing negative impacts.
For patents, designs and trademarks we are specialized to provide:
when the client becomes aware of a competitor patent or design or trademark and wants to know if it would risk to encroach a technological or commercial area already protected by others. The purpose is not only to avoid legal disputes and claims, but also to find new solutions.
when the client becomes aware of a competitor patent or design and wants to design a new product or method that does not fall in that protected area. Our in-depth knowledge of interpreting patent claims and other technical expertise come together in synergy with the knowledge of the client to arrive at a new product, and free from patent rights. In 99% of cases it is our client who then is able to patent the product he just created, and to consolidate its strategic position in the market.
when the client wants to know if a competing patent or design or trademark is reasonably valid and to what extent (i.e. if it satisfies the requirements of patentability or registration with respect to relevant state of the art), or when the client wants to know if a competitor patent or design or trademark has a chance to pass the granting examinations and how.
