Intellectual property rights

Patents and know-how

We assist in matter pertaining to the validity or infringement of patents, including in disputes before the courts. We also have particular experience in matters regarding employee inventions.

Our lawyers advise on the drafting of licensing agreements and other agreements relating to technology transfer and the protection of know-how and other confidential information.

We also have considerable experience of research and development agreements, and agreements relating to research cooperation. We have a thorough knowledge of the requirements applicable to such agreements, including the competition rules which govern them, and requirements under Norwegian and European subsidy schemes.
