Patent Litigation

We safeguard your freedom to operate

IP Litigation - Patent Litigation

In the event of your technical IP rights being infringed, with Eisenführ Speiser at your side you have every available option for enforcing your intellectual property. Here, too, the consultancy services we provide are business-minded in approach, with a focus on your corporate strategies. What are the prospects for success? What alternatives for dispute resolution have realistic prospects of succeeding? Does it make business or financial sense to take action against an infringement, or are there other ways of extracting value from your IP, for example by granting licences? Where and how are infringement proceedings to be conducted? Are antitrust problems to be expected? We design the appropriate strategy for each case with you.

Even if you have received a warning about infringing rights, or are a defendant in infringement proceedings, identifying and analysing the situation is the first step in developing a strategy. Our teams of attorneys are there to support you and to represent you before the infringement courts, also when launching counter-attacks against patents or utility models that have been wrongly granted.

When working on patent litigation with Eisenführ Speiser, you benefit from the close collaboration between our patent attorneys and attorneys-at-law, thus producing an unusual concentration of both legal and technical expertise. Well-rehearsed from a wealth of court cases, our seasoned teams of patent attorneys and attorneys-at-law have the experience needed for every possible step – from interim injunctions to border confiscation and pursuing a case through every court instance, or to arbitration proceedings. Our attorneys do not confine their activities to Germany alone, but will work whenever necessary with partner law firms of high repute to coordinate whole sets of proceedings at international level.
