A passive business will soon see its market share fall, its trademarks become diluted and its investments decrease in value. One aspect is to ensure that legal advise and measures are taken at an early stage. It is important to have a patent strategy and to revise the strategy as the company matures or changes direction. In order for the protection gained through exclusive rights to be effective, it is sometimes necessary to take legal actions against infringement. What sanctions that can be imposed on the infringer? What are the pitfalls and challenges that can be avoided or even benefited from?

”The intangible assets of a company are often a significant part of the assets. In order for a company's patent portfolio to become as strong and valuable as possible it is important that the invention is handled in an adequate way from the beginning. This requires a close cooperation between you as client and us as a patent consultants. Our aim is to produce a patent that gives the client the best value, and we are looking forward to giving you an insight and a taste of how we do it.”
“When acquiring a patent portfolio the company of course needs to know the answer to the question “why”. This calls for a strategy on “how” the patents are meant to be used and what risks and opportunities that planned use would transfer back to the patent and the company. Here we need to address the issue of “when”. As a lawyer we always prefer to be there as early as possible, because that is when we can minimize risks and create additional business value in a cost efficient way for years to come.”
