Patent services

 

Novelty searches and patentability reports

By conducting prior art searches and evaluating the results, we help our clients to identify their inventions – and business assets.

Oppositions

There may be different views on the validity of a granted patent. We assist in filing oppositions against third parties’ patents, and help our clients defend their patents when attacked by third parties.

Drafting and prosecution

We aim to draft applications that provide a solid protection for an invention. We then file and prosecute the application directly in Sweden, at the European Patent Office and in the United States, and in all other countries through our international network.

Freedom to Operate (FTO)

A granted patent is not a guarantee that an invention can be used freely. We perform FTO analyses and help to reduce the risk of infringing third parties’ patent rights.

Supplementary Protection Certificate (SPC)

The patent term for pharmaceutical products may sometimes be extended as a compensation for regulatory delay. We handle the filing of SPC applications in Sweden and other jurisdictions.
