Whether you discover that a competitor is blatantly stealing your ideas, or find yourself being accused of infringing someone else’s intellectual property, there will be times when taking a passive attitude is not an option. Your first instinct should be to get your IP attorneys involved.

At IPLodge, we will not blindly send you into a costly litigation, but openly discuss the strengths and weaknesses of your case and help you choose the best course of action. We will help you negotiate a beneficial settlement if possible, and help you get through litigation if necessary.

As the final preparations are being made to get the Unified Patent Court ready for business, IPLodge has its UPC litigation team ready, consisting of European patent attorneys with the necessary additional legal qualifications to represent parties before the UPC. By combining legal and technical skills under one roof, IPLodge can help you avoid the more costly option of retaining attorneys-at-law for your representation, and non-representing patent attorneys to assist them with technical matters.

In patent proceedings before national courts that require the involvement of a national attorney-at-law, IPLodge’s patent attorneys can support your attorney-at-law with the analysis of prior art documents, novelty and inventive step assessments, technical analysis of (allegedly) infringing products or processes, and the like.
