We are experienced at handling disputes relating to IP in various forums in the UK and Europe. We regularly handle disputes including trade mark and patent oppositions at the UK registry, EU Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO) and the European Patent Office.
In addition, we are skilled at handling litigation in order to enforce trade mark rights at the Intellectual Property and Enterprise Court (IPEC) and at the UK High Court. Our desire is always to avoid litigation, if possible, but in appropriate cases we can offer a cost-effective route for enforcing your IP rights. Our knowledge of litigation provides a useful experience over the entire IP lifecycle. This can be beneficial during the application process to ensure that defendable IP rights are created.
