Intellectual Property Infringements

IP Infringements of Trademarks, Patents and Plant Breeders’ Rights

Your IP, whether a trademark or multiple complex patents, does nothing more than give you permission to exclude something that only you can legally do.

When IP infringements take place, all sorts of challenges begin...

From first filing to well into the 20-year life of a typical patent, you face the risk that third parties will knowingly or unknowingly infringe your IP. When that happens, having a partner who can guide you towards the most cost-effective course of action (whether that is litigation or win: win alternatives such as licensing agreements) is essential.


Giving advice and undertaking IP Infringements

With several hundred IP attorneys in our pan-European team, and over 10,000 years’ combined experience, we’re ideally positioned to support you:

  • General advice on intellectual property infringements
  • Avoiding infringement
  • Determining infringement
  • Stopping infringements
  • Special remedies

In fields as diverse as traditional patent infringements, infringement of trademarks and plant breeders’ rights, experience shows that prevention is usually better than cure. That’s why, as part of our comprehensive IP portfolio management services, we advise on (and help you put in place) strong IP to dissuade infringement. Wherever possible, we’ll seek the most cost-effective course of action to protect your IP interests.

However, where this isn’t sufficient, our intellectual property attorneys can take all required measures. These include cease and desist letters, injunctions and alternative dispute resolution (ADR). Naturally, our expertise covers EU and member states’ judicial systems.

You only have to read respected reports such as the Results of to be reminded of the ‘wasted management time of business executives and other participants in proceedings, lost productivity, and lost business opportunities due to the reserves required to cover the worst potential outcome of a pending dispute.’

Fortunately, our IP management professionals can help mitigate these costs. We handle everything from

initial advice to infringement litigation in the EU Court of Justice or European Parliament. Whatever litigation is required, our 10,000 years’ combined experience and solid record in IP portfolio management is here for you.

We’re also one of Europe’s friendliest, most helpful teams of IP professionals. Ours are the professionals you want on your side if IP infringements go to law.

I’ve been very pleased with AIPEX ; the AIPEX team has been able to get some traction on a few cases that I’ve had languishing in the EP. Legal expertise has been very good, technical expertise is good and improving. I’ve been having them prepare more and more substantive responses and fewer ‘receiving agent’ responses where I have US counsel just tell them how to respond. I feel like I’m getting better results having AIPEX handle the case
