Litigation and Dispute Resolution
Litigation and Dispute Resolution are both effective methods of stopping competitors from using your intellectual property, either through copying or through the creation of something very similar, without your permission.
Our patent, trademark and design attorneys have expertise across all areas of IP law. Many are experienced litigators, able to provide both technical and legal argumentation in support and defence of your registered IP and brand’s reputation.
Prevention, Protection or Settlement
Disputes and Litigation may be necessary for many reasons but will often be a last resort. Zacco can assist with many forms of monitoring and enforcement, but when all other possibilities have been exhausted then dispute resolution or litigation may be your only available option.
When your brand has suffered reputational damage and lost customers, or your products have been copied and defamed, then pursuing and negotiating a favourable financial settlement can go some way to restoring your previous position in the market.
Authorised, Knowledgeable and Experienced
Our IP professionals are experts in dispute resolution and experienced in proceedings at the EPO as well as national courts and authorities throughout Germany, Denmark, Sweden, Norway and the UK, among many others. This collective expertise ensures that we can support you from a pan-European perspective, through both European and Global dispute resolution.
We work alongside technical experts in all areas of intellectual property and have a detailed understanding of the latest emerging technologies as well as international and online legislation. Many are registered as expert witnesses who can be called into IP courts to deliver comprehensive technical assessments of the issues, assisting patent, trademark and design attorneys in a range of litigation and dispute matters.
Many of our practitioners are authorised to act before the EPO, the EUIPO, and the UPC, as well as all relevant courts in their respective countries. They will be able to guide you through legal proceedings, anticipating and explaining the process step by step and even have the expertise to coordinate and direct proceedings across multiple countries
