To maintain their value, IP rights must be defended. This can be done through legal proceedings or through mediation. We can help you with both.
The mediation process
Both litigation and mediation are used to stop competitors from using your protected IP right unlawfully. Litigation allows the right holder to recover damages for the unlawful use of the protected IP right. To initiate legal proceedings, the right holder must file a lawsuit with a competent court. In the mediation process, the parties rely on a mediator to assist them in finding an amicable solution to the conflict without having to go to court.
