Are you already aware of third-party patents which might jeopardize your new development or the marketing of your product?
Depending upon the progress of your project, we can suggest various solutions. If it is still possible to redesign your product or process, we work with you to find practicable workarounds to avoid any patent infringement. We strive to offer creative solutions that can be integrated easily into your product without losses.
If a workaround is impossible, undesirable or disadvantageous, we can act on your behalf within our range of possibilities, for example with nullity actions, to revoke a patent or restrict its protective scope. To do so, we work together with you to determine the state of the art . In addition to our own searches, we can use the services of cost-efficient search providers. Once we have determined the state of the art technology , we can clarify the next steps. Before attacking the patent, it may be possible to request a royalty-free license from the patent’s owner.
