Litigation within intellectual property typically concerns:
- Ownership disputes
Litigation is costly and involves some uncertainty regarding the outcome. A court case should therefore be planned meticulously and alternatives should be explores before legal action is taken.
Before initiating legal action, the following should be considered as a minimum:
- is it possible to agree on cooperation or licensing with the other party
- in which country or region will legal action entail the largest commercial advantages
- are there alternatives to the courts, such as for example mediation
