SERVICES

We help you to protect your innovation in the best possible way.

Patenting

  • Our patent attorney drafts an application based on your description of the invention. Following your approval of the final draft, we’ll submit it for examination to patent authorities in your chosen target countries. With our own expertise and our extensive international network of partners we manage patenting globally. We’ll manage your application throughout its lifecycle as per your instructions.
  • In some countries, it is possible to apply for a utility model instead of or in addition to a patent. We will advise you in selecting the protection that best suits your needs.

Identifying inventions

  • It’s not always immediately clear which aspects of a new product or solution can be protected, and one product or solution can include several inventions. We’ll help you to identify your inventions and ideas leading to inventions that may be protected. The inventions and ideas can be analysed for example in a workshop together with your product development team.

First meeting free of charge

  • We offer a free 1-hour initial meeting for analysing your specific needs and discussing your options in confidence. Together we’ll determine the best course of action to protect your innovation.

Are you on top of the patenting landscape in your area of business? Do you know what your competition is patenting? We’ll analyse the situation for you.

Novelty searches and patentability analyses

  • In novelty search and patentability analysis, we analyse whether your invention is new and patentable. As a by-product, you are provided with an overview of the patents related to your invention.

Freedom to Operate (FTO) analysis

  • In a Freedom to Operate analysis, we search for and analyse patents in a given technical field and their impact on your business. The earlier and better you’re familiar with the rights of other parties, the better you can steer your product development in a way that minimises any patent-related risks.

Competitor analysis

  • We analyse the patent portfolios of your competitors, and how they are developing. With this analysis, you can minimise potential infringement risks and stay up to date on where your competitors’ technology is developing. You’ll get the latest information on any new patents and patent applications of your competitors, enabling you to take action when necessary.

Infringement analysis

  • Do you suspect your competitor is using your patented solution? We’ll investigate whether your competitor’s product infringes your patent, and we can also compare your product against a competitor’s patent. If the competitor’s patent does not cover your product, we can prepare a non-infringement statement to support your business.

Outsourced IPR service

  • Do you need help managing your internal IPR matters but lack the necessary resources to recruit a full-time employee, or only have a temporary demand for such services? We provide patent specialist services for hire. We can help you assess invention reports and handle matters related to employee inventions. Our services are tailored to your specific needs.

A patent gives you the right to exclude others from exploiting your invention or innovation, but you as the patent holder must assert your rights yourself. We’ll help you resolve patent-related disputes, whether defending your rights or dealing with a threat imposed by competitors’ rights.

Litigation

  • We serve as your technical specialist in court proceedings. We’ll manage the litigation processes together with a law office.

Nullification of competitor rights

  • On occasion, a competitor’s patent may have been granted under false pretenses, meaning for example that the invention is not new or inventive. A third-party observation, opposition, re-examination request and nullification action are tools to address such situations. We recommend the best course of action on a case-by-case basis.

Defending your rights

  • We’ll help you defend your rights against competitors’ infringement claims and assert your patent rights against infringement by competitors. We determine the best course of action on a case-by-case basis.
