Opposition against a grant of a patent
Our team of experts offer the following services:
- Evaluate the prospects of success of a possible patent appeal procedure;
- Formulate grounds for opposition;
- Submit the application to the competent Office.
The prospects of success for an objection need to be considered individually. You would definitely need a legal consultation to find out more information about the situation of your patent and your chances to register your invention.
The opposition procedure ends with the revocation or the maintenance of the patent. Partial decisions are possible. In both cases, the unsuccessful party may lodge a complaint with the Federal Patent Court.
If the opposition period is already expired, an objection can not be presented; instead a plea for annulment can be taken into consideration.
