Litigation: Adapting to the clients’ needs

The protection of patent rights is a challenge for their owners. REGIMBEAU provides the necessary technical and legal expertise in the preparation and management of litigation before the French courts. However, even if patent litigation is often required to manage Industrial Property disputes, REGIMBEAU also proposes exploring other strategies such as opposition, licensing or joint-venture negotiations for the benefit of its clients. REGIMBEAU offers a comprehensive range of tools to deal with the most complex of European IP issues.​

IP Portfolio Evaluation

The assessment and valuation of an IP Portfolio is crucial to enable companies to raise funds, build partnerships, acquire intellectual property rights or obtain licences in order to accelerate their business development. Industrial property audits and due diligence actions require the kind of specialist expertise that REGIMBEAU can provide.​

Opposition proceedings before the European Patent Office (EPO)

Opposition procedures remain the most effective way to cancel or limit a patent within all Member States designated in the European Patent Convention. REGIMBEAU’s 30 European Patent Attorneys attend to and represent their French and foreign clients, not only when they wish to oppose a patent, but also to advise and assist when their own patents are subject to an opposition.This includes representation at oral proceedings before the EPO in both oppositions and appeals.
