IP right infringement creates an economic trap for many companies and is a vital issue whose consequences can be very serious. We accompany our clients in their litigations at court by providing our expertise in this field.
Infringement is a legal battlefield in which the opposing parties are often not lawyers. CAPRI provides the indispensable technical-legal interface that enables its clients to effectively transmit their arguments and wishes to the legal players (attorneys at law and judges).
We provide assistance for court cases and disputes, particularly those concerning: infringement, imitation, unfair competition, invalidity of patents, trade marks, design patents, non-fulfilment of contract clauses and ownership claims.
We also participate in the identification of infringers and acts of infringement by injunctions, bailiff's affidavits and seizures for infringement.
CAPRI also takes part in amicable settlement transactions.
In the case of legal proceedings, we offer our services for monitoring, advising and preparing case files.
Our client holds a patent widely used in the field of upmarket pumps. A competitor infringed the patent rights by manufacturing and selling down-market products that incorporated the client's invention.
After losing its case in a first hearing and then losing its appeal, the competitor was finally forced to pay damages, which, based on the margin lost by our client, largely exceeded the fruit of its infringement.
