Intellectual Property Litigation

Wherever possible, we’ll avoid the cost of IP litigation.

There are often alternatives, ranging from early warnings to creating new licensees out of infringers. Sometimes, however, trademark, design right or patent infringement can only be dealt with by intellectual property litigation.

From trademark disputes to complex patent lawsuits, we protect your IP.

Over 500 AIPEX IP attorneys and other professionals pride themselves on being the most helpful, knowledgeable and friendly in pan-European IP. When litigation is needed, you’ll be glad our assertive intellectual property lawyers and their teams are on your side. They’re powerful allies during a patent lawsuit – or other IP litigation – in the judicial systems of the EU and member states.

When that time comes, a partner it’s essential to have a partner. Someone to guide you through the most cost-effective IP litigation. And to protect your IP and business reputation. That’s what we do.


Giving advice and undertaking IP litigation

With so many pan-Europeans patent litigators in our team, and over 10,000 years’ combined experience, we’re well positioned to advise and take action at any stage in an IP case:

  • General advice
  • Litigation strategy formulation
  • Research into prior art
  • Product analysis
  • Discovery
  • Infringement and invalidity contentions
  • Witness liaison
  • Expert reports
  • Pre-trial and trial

We operate in areas as diverse as traditional patent infringement or the most arcane litigation connected with today’s evolving IP. Whatever your IP requirement, we advise on (and help establish) robust IP to discourage infringement and protect your IP rights.

You only have to read influential industry reports such as the World Intellectual Property Organisation’s Results of the WIPO Arbitration and Mediation Center International Survey on Dispute Resolution in Technology Transactions (2013) 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 you mitigate these costs.

Taking care of your IP litigation

Our bespoke IP portfolio management service means tailor-made IP solutions for you. These could range from the basic advice of an IP attorney to the work of a top patent litigation attorney in the EU Court of Justice or European Parliament.

Whatever we do for you, you know you can get on with other important business tasks while we take care of the intellectual property litigation.

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
