Enforcement and litigation

We look after your rights

Enforcement and litigation

At the very core of exclusive rights such as patents, trademarks, designs, trade secrets and rights under the Danish Marketing Practices Act lies the right to prohibit others from exploiting the rights commercially and to claim compensation should infringement nonetheless occur.

Enforcement is a key component of the life cycle of your rights. If your rights are infringed, it is essential to have a lawyer who knows every inch of the matter at hand – and who has access to important knowledge about your area of business.

If a third party infringes your patent on an invention, it may be of vital importance that your lawyer specialises in IP rights and that he or she has in-house access to some of Denmark’s most skilled patent experts. Our patent attorneys’ knowledge about your invention and area of business is often a crucial supplement to your lawyer’s legal expertise – and it increases your chances of succeeding.

How we can help you if you face an infringement claim

If you are faced with a claim that you have infringed a third party’s rights, we will initially carry out a thorough evaluation of whether the claim is justified. Based on our evaluation, we determine the best possible strategy, which in the circumstances may consist in contesting the claim and raising a counterclaim, for example by requesting revocation of the right on which the claim is based.

A part of the strategy may be to seek a negotiated settlement. We have extensive experience in negotiating legal and commercial settlement agreements, including as part of judicial mediation or out-of-court mediation.
