Conflict

You have made the right first step: consulting an experienced team in IP conflicts.

Unfortunately a conflict has arisen! Your intellectual efforts are being copied, a partner or distributor is appropriating your IP, or another party is accusing you of the same. Don't worry, you're not on your own.

Whether a formal procedure (oppostition, cancellation action, etc.) has already started or not, At Winger we have experience in analysing such situations. And our service goes further than that.

Based on the analysis, we will assist you in deciding the best course of action, setting up an action plan to counter the infringement or complaint, thus making sure your efforts and investments are not in vain. The Winger team will help you protect your rights and resolve these issues as efficiently and effectively as possible.

We can guide you from the initial warning letter from or to the third party, over negotiating with the other party, pursuing formal actions, or seeking alternative dispute resolution methods, even up to providing technical assistance in court cases.

Our team has extensive experience representing clients in intellectual property disputes, including trademark infringement, patent infringement, trade secret misappropriation, and domain name disputes. We work closely with you to understand your goals and develop a strategy that aligns with your needs.
In addition to resolving conflicts, we also offer proactive services to help avoid disputes in the first place. This includes conducting comprehensive trademark searches and patent searches to identify potential conflicts and developing strategies to mitigate the risks.
