1. Situation analysis
We will go through particular patents, trademarks or designs of concern, possible contacts from the other party and reasons for the analysis. Additionally, we will settle on the content of our cooperation. In the case of making an infringement analysis, we will go through the key features of the product or service in question.
2. Analyzing the scope of protection and/or drafting the infringement statementWe will analyse the actual scope of protection of the patent, trademark or design. If needed, we will compare the scopes of protection in force in different countries. In the infringement statement, the expert provides their reasoned written analysis of whether the service or product infringes an immaterial right of the other party.
3. Reporting and suggestions for further actionsWe will write a report and, if agreed upon, go through the results of the analysis and/or infringement statement with you. We will also suggest further actions suitable for the situation if needed.
Ensuring Freedom to Operate and encountering suspected infringements are critical situations for businesses. To minimise the damages, it's important to carefully clarify the situation before taking any action.
