Large companies often have their own in-house patent department. Nevertheless they frequently employ services of external patent attorneys for matters that require a very specific expertise or when workload exceeds the capacity of their in-house attorneys.  In these cases we are there to help.

Expertise on demand

Our expertise is helpful in, for example, conducting oral proceedings in examination, opposition or appeal, assisting with key patent applications that turn out to be particularly difficult to prosecute, rendering advice on patent validity and infringement and assisting in conducting patent litigation.  When needed, we also provide routine drafting and prosecutions services. We have the man-power to work on an urgent, sometimes last-minute basis.

You can count on us

With more than 60 attorneys, our expertises cover a broad field of specialisms and sectors, nationally and internationally. We have attorneys experienced in handling oppositions and in conducting oral proceedings.  Some attorneys run a practice largely devoted to patent litigation and are experienced in handling infringement and validity opinions. Several of our patent attorneys have years’ long experience as in-house corporate patent counsel.  For them, the switch-over to in-house counseling is natural. You can count on us, whenever and wherever we are needed.

From 'high-profile' to extra capacity

We can handle worldwide prosecution of parts of existing patent portfolios. Also, we can temporarily second our attorneys to companies to work  in-house. With our seasoned private practice attorneys and highly experienced former in-house counsels, we are uniquely equipped to provide support for “high-profile” cases.
