PATENT & TM ATTORNEYS PRACTICE
Preparation of Clearance Opinions
Any opinion should be prepared with consideration for its potential use in IP disputes. This means that the opinion will be thoroughly examined by the attorneys and experts of the opposing party, whose aim will be to disprove any undesirable conclusions contained in the opinion. Therefore, a high-quality and reliable patent infringement opinion demands that the expert preparing it be exceptionally well qualified as a specialist in the field to which the patented solution relates; the expertise must extend to preparing opinions in the relevant field, as well as presenting it in an objective and logical manner to be convincing before the court, which also requires knowledge of the current court practice.
