Crefovi has an ‟Intellectual property litigation” practice, which works with clients to shape business strategies that maximise the value of their assets and optimise their returns on intellectual property investments.
Crefovi has a team of intellectual property lawyers, who use their technological expertise to advise clients on how to capitalise on IP counseling & risk management, i.e. on their intellectual property investments by proactively auditing, analysing and conducting due diligence related to their assets.
Crefovi understands the costs and burdens that the prospect of lingering litigation imposes on a company. For this reason, the firm’s lawyers strategically resolve clients’ issues before a case ever gets to a courtroom, by successfully negotiating settlements, license agreements and technology business arrangements consistent with the unique goals of each client.
Comprehensive expertise in IP counseling & risk management
Our lawyers have the experience and knowledge to assist or lead our clients in the development of IP strategies that are consistent with their business strategies and business models.
In many cases, the lawyers of Crefovi have efficiently converted disputes into productive commercial transactions. The firm counsels clients regarding multiple issues, including:
- changes in the technology landscape;
- creating strategic alliances, distribution and outsourcing arrangements;
- forming technology-sharing, foundry and collaboration agreements;
- identifying candidates for prosecution or acquisition;
- negotiating research and development agreements, and
- prime licensing and/or enforcement opportunities.
Crefovi’s intellectual property lawyers combine their prowess in the courtroom and expert knowledge of intellectual property assets with extensive experience in counseling companies across a spectrum of industries, from medical devices and biotechnology, to telecommunications and computer software and hardware, to provide outstanding client services and create win-win resolutions.
A global network
Clients praise Crefovi’s lawyers for their responsiveness & ability to understand the technical, business and legal aspects of each matter in relation to IP counseling & risk management, and come back, matter after matter, to be advised by them.
While London and Paris based, we routinely work across borders. The vast majority of our engagements are multi-jurisdictional. We are used to working in multinational teams, and rely on our network of specialist lawyers for support in other jurisdictions.
The team has therefore established an extensive international network of intellectual property law contacts and a close association with other specialist lawyers worldwide. Our history of successes in high profile, politically sensitive matters reflects an ability to act swiftly and with the utmost discretion.
