We provide opposition services concerning patents, trade marks and designs.


We can handle all types of opposition work, including complex cases, in respect of both patents and trade marks.   Patent rights in 30 or more countries can be at stake in European patent opposition cases.  Valuable brand assets can be at stake in trade mark opposition cases.  The technical and legal issues involved in such cases are often extremely complex, and the practices of the various Opposition Divisions and Boards of Appeal are constantly evolving.

Constructing a written case, and presenting arguments successfully at an oral hearing, in opposition cases can be an immense challenge. That is where our extensive opposition experience counts.
We are currently handling over 250 pending opposition and appeal cases covering all areas of technology, and have handled a large number of such cases over the years. We have successfully attacked or defended some of the most valuable European trade marks and patents in a range of business and technological areas.
