As exclusive rights in – often very valuable – new technology, it is not surprising that patents give rise to complex disputes. We can help you handle all types of contentious work connected with patents, whether you need to challenge a third party who is making unauthorised use of your patented invention, or defend yourself from one that has asserted its patent against you.

Disputes over patent rights can arise in many different ways. There can, for example, be disagreements about who invented an idea, who should own a patent or whether a patent is infringed.

While disputes can often be resolved by the courts – and Beck Greener has an outstanding record of winning in court for its clients – it is far less expensive to resolve them before they get that far.

We regularly resolve patent disputes of all different types and complexities, usually without the need for escalation. However, we also have experience of handling inventorship and ownership disputes, which have required the involvement of the UKIPO, as well as patent infringement cases heard by the court.

Whatever your dispute, we can help you get the bottom of it, offering sensible, practical advice to assist you in resolving it as quickly and cost effectively as possible.

'Beck Greener is "an exceptional patent firm which delivers the best for each client, from application to potential disputes." The firm impresses with its very successful EPO oppositions and appeals practice, and is regularly selected by major multinationals as adviser for European patent prosecution.'
