It’s a given that we will know your technology inside out, as well as the established EPO case law. We excel by anticipating changes in a case and changes in your commercial position. Our experienced Oppositions specialists devise and revise their strategy at each stage. They know which areas of a case to push and which to hold back on. We keep our ear to the ground at the EPO so that we can spot the emerging trends with relevant legal issues.

Our specialists work closely with you at each stage. Some of our clients consider us to be an extension of their in house team. Our Oppositions team have a proven track record, but we recognise that we’re only as good as our last result. We are your proactive partner to help your business navigate through each opposition to achieve the result that best matches your commercial goals.
