Patenter og brugsmodeller

Vi er eksperter inden for:

  • Sager om patentkrænkelser og gyldighed
  • Aftaler om overdragelse af patenter
  • Knowhow- og teknologioverførselsaftaler
  • Patentlicensaftaler
  • Forsknings- og udviklingsaftaler
  • Patentstrategisk rådgivning.

Hvordan kan vi hjælpe?
Vores rådgivning er baseret på indgående forståelse af patentets tekniske forhold og på et stort kendskab til vores klienters forretningsområder og brancher.

Vi rådgiver danske og udenlandske virksomheder om alle forhold inden for patentretten og yder strategisk rådgivning i forhold til håndhævelse  og kommercialisering af patenter.

Vores klienter er både små og store virksomheder, der kommer fra vidt forskellige brancher. En stor del arbejder inden for tekniske områder så som elektronik, mekanik, lægemidler og bioteknologi.

Vi har stor erfaring med at føre rets- og voldgiftssager om gyldighed og krænkelser af patenter og brugsmodeller. Vi rådgiver også i sager om eksempelvis administrativ omprøvning ved patentmyndighederne.

Vi vil levere den bedst mulige rådgivning – både i og uden for Danmark. Derfor samarbejder vi med et stort globalt netværk af advokatvirksomheder, der bistår os, når vores klienter har behov for rådgivning om udenlandske forhold. Derudover deltager vi i en række danske og internationale netværk.

Udfordringer på området
Aldrig før har det været så vigtigt at beskytte og udnytte immaterielle rettigheder. Den teknologiske udvikling har øget risikoen for krænkelser af patenter og brugsmodeller verden over – og resultatet er ofte store økonomiske tab for de retsmæssige ejere.

Virksomheder må derfor beskytte og overvåge deres immaterielle rettigheder nøje, hvis de vil forblive konkurrencedygtige og sikre, at deres rettigheder kan følge med ved en eventuel virksomhedsoverdragelse.
