In case a client assumes a third party to potentially infringe his patent, BiiP investigates the legal situation and assist the client in approaching the third party (e.g. direct contact, warning letters, etc), in enforcing the client’s negative right (e.g. via litigation), in negotiating a license, etc.
The objective is to make a competitor’s rights un-enforceable and invalidating his patent by means of a nullity suit or by initiating opposition against the grant of the patent. Therefore we perform a detailed, worldwide search for patents, published patent applications and non-patent literature including white papers, articles, Internet publications, etc. The search covers multiple technology areas and traces the history of events.
Biip assists the client in all types of lawsuits with regards to IP, such as nullity suits, infringement lawsuits, breach of confidentiality, etc.
