Lawyers for patent and utility patent law

From research and development contracts to licensing agreements and patent infringement lawsuits, our patent and utility patent lawyers have extensive experience both on the claimant and the defendant side and will be happy to assist you. 

Ahead of patent infringement lawsuits, our lawyers provide support for inspections and other preservation of evidence procedures. They advise on nullity, opposition and cancellation proceedings and obtain temporary injunctions in urgent cases. They also take criminal and civil action against patent infringements. 

In addition to in-court representation, our patent and utility patent lawyers provide a range of related services. They advise on licensing agreements, cooperation agreements, and research and development agreements, prepare freedom to operate opinions and assist with technology-driven M&A transactions (including IP due diligence). 

They also represent clients out of court in mediation and arbitration proceedings. They regularly succeed in settling patent disputes amicably and avoiding court cases.
