IP Oppositions

Third party objections to your IP applications or granted rights can occur, and it is essential that the correct representation is chosen to best defend your intellectual property rights.

Patent and Trade Mark Oppositions

The decision whether or not to proceed with oppositions or appeals against your patent or trade mark should always consider your commercial aims and requirements. A pragmatic approach is often to negotiate a suitable settlement.

Finding appropriate solutions

IP litigation can be costly and time consuming. But it is often possible to find a mutually agreeable solution to the situation. At Sandersons, we have extensive experience carrying out patent and trade mark oppositions and appeals to the UK IPO, and through the Boards of Appeal before EUIPO.

Our approach

Sandersons is experienced in all aspects of intellectual property oppositions and appeals. We have a proven track record of success with complex, high-value oppositions and appeals.

Our team regularly present our clients’ cases before the Opposition Division and the Board of Appeal of the European Patent Office. Prior to embarking on litigation, we work with our clients to fully assess their position, possible outcomes and financial considerations before deciding on a suitable course of action.

Asserting your rights correctly

We can help you to assert your rights in the right way, and assist with providing arguments to present during court proceedings for infringement actions.
