How to enter the European Market?
Our goal is to provide comprehensive, multifaceted information and assistance to our clients in relation to bringing their products, services or technologies into the European market. A fundamental prerequisite of this market entry is the solid legal standing and protection of the products, services or technologies relating to the business activity.
In our office we provide consulting, monitoring and administrative assistance to our clients on an European level, based on near 30 years of experience in the field of Intellectual Property Protection. Our aim is to paint a clear picture for our clients about the legal status of their intellectual property, products, services or technologies, and to build up a comprehensive intellectual property protection strategy based on our client’s business priorities. Our office provides complete confidentiality in relation to your initial inquiry, and to later communications during the consultative, administrative steps.
The aim of legal protection:
Guarantee the exclusivity of your products, services and technologies. The scope of exclusivity spans manufacturing, marketing, licensing and import.
Distinguish your business from market competitors. Legal protection also helps proving the originality and distinctness of your products, services and technologies.
Protection helps resolving legal disputes:
Preempt costly legal disputes and litigation by the appropriate and timely protection of intellectual property, and free up resources and person power for regular business activities.
Timely legal protection can help setting the situation straight in certain disputed situations, and help reaching a positive outcome. Intellectual property with uncertain legal standing may lead to lengthy and costly legal litigation with uncertain outcome.
Methods of intellectual property protection:
The European Union and the European Patent Convention offers several particular ways for business entities to protect their products, services and technologies: Patent, Trademark, Design.
Precedent or priority: Deciding whether previous legal protection can serve as priority or precedent during the European process requires a detailed analysis. Our office provides full professional assistance in these questions.
Protect your market interests
It is a well known fact for business entities that in each market and geographical area it is necessary to protect their products, services, technologies and intellectual property from a legal standpoint.
The aim of protecting intellectual property is twofold: Firstly it guarantees exclusivity for the products, services, technologies. The scope of exclusivity spans manufacturing, marketing, licensing and import. Secondly, intellectual property protection proves the originality and priority of the products, services and technologies against market competitors.
In our experience building up the legal protection and registering intellectual property at an early, appropriate time can preempt later legal disputes and litigation, thus saving businesses the related costs. In certain disputed situations it can also help setting the situation straight, and help reaching a positive outcome.
Our offer for business entities interested in entering the European market is to help explore the possibilities for the European legal protection of their products, services, technologies from the aspect of intellectual property.
