With a strong patent litigation team in place, it is possible to both protect market share and extend a product’s life span by effectively defending against patent infringements.
To successfully enforce patent rights, the team must be familiar with the technical and legal aspects of the case and be capable of discussing them with the lawyer on an even level. For defence of life science patents, an ideal litigation support team would include:
- A top-level patent attorney with extensive litigation experience as well as knowledge of local practice and IP case law.
- One or more patent attorneys with substantial technical expertise
- A European Patent Attorney (EPA) with significant and current knowledge of European IP case law and practice.
- An experienced translator of technical and legal documentation and court exhibits.
