Opposition and Appeals
Full Court Press
TLIP attorneys are used to acting for both proprietor and opponent.
We recognise that patent oppositions are filed for many commercial reasons and understanding those reasons first is key to running a case towards a successful outcome. Understanding the motivations of the opponent can help find a resolution and determine the amount of resource we should apply to the defence, for example. Where we need to defend to the end, we will do so giving-up no quarter to the opponent and seeing out the whole procedure towards a successful outcome for our client.
Appeals are frequently focussed on the most important issues and good use of timing, expert procedural knowledge and careful use of technical submissions can turn a case around or affirm a positive first instance decision.
