Oppositions and Appeals

When oppositions and appeals arise, we’ll help you prepare all the documents and materials you need. Our specialist team of intellectual property attorneys will provide expertise, advice and support through every stage of the process, whether at the EPO or EUIPO or in opposition or revocation proceedings at the national level.

Preparing for opposition proceedings is an important element of any intellectual property strategy. Proper management of the process from an early stage offers you a competitive advantage.


Graham Murnane, Director, Patents

It’s important to be as aware of your competitors’ activities as you are of your own. That allows you to prepare in advance for opposing third party rights, or even filing pre-grant observations, while ensuring your own rights are as secure as possible against third party oppositions. It’s a comprehensive and cost-effective way to stay prepared for any eventuality.
