Patent Opposition

Pre-Grant and Post-Grant Opposition at Indian Patent Office (IPO)

  • Drafting Patent Opposition Notice/Counter Statement
  • Evidence Management
  • Representation/Hearing
  • Patent Appeals
  • Patent Dispute Resolution
  • Patent Settlements

Patent opposition provides the public, and interested parties, an opportunity to object to the grant of a patent. Owing to the nature of protection afforded by a patent, a patent grant  in its field of operation may turn out to be a stumbling block for a business, and sometimes even to the society at large. Successfully opposing a patent not only requires a deep understanding of the law and procedures, it also demands comprehensive research, strategic approach and skillful process management. The same skills are required to defend an opposition notice against a patent application.

Our highly experienced team of patent attorneys draft, file and represent clients at the patent office in India in pre-grant and post-grant oppositions. Working closely with clients, we devise patent opposition strategies in line with business goals. During the process, absolute emphasis is laid on removal of  business hindrances and process management in line with the said objective. Our team specializes in converting patent oppositions into business opportunities for clients.
