IP-Strategy & Due Diligence
The first strategic decision to be made is often where to file for foreign patents or trade marks. Turnover in foreign markets, location of competitors as well as the costs involved are important factors in making these decisions. We have excellent contacts to IP specialists worldwide. We can check and optimise your IP portfolio with a view to your products and their markets.
We can evaluate IP to be transfered to your company, for example within the context of an acquisition or a merger.
We also provide you with freedom to operate expertises (FTO) before or during product development, in order to determine potentially colliding IP rights. In case of potential conflicts, we can provide you with infringement opinions, so that you are in a position to evaluate your chances and risks.
