Opposition & Appeals

We have extensive experience representing clients in offensive and defensive oppositions and appeals at the European Patent Office (EPO).

We have significant experience in winning opposition and appeals for our clients and we are well-known in the IP profession for our handling of these cases with a successful outcome.

A successful outcome in EPO patent oppositions/appeals are business critical for our clients and they enable them to maintain or gain an advantage on their competitors, or even establish their place in a competitive market. What makes us successful is not just our intrinsic knowledge of the ever-changing procedural parts of the process, but also knowledge of the law and our deep-rooted subject matter expertise.

We have a large team of patent attorneys who possess considerable experience representing our clients at EPO oral proceedings both at opposition level and before the Boards of Appeal.
