Most types of contract include one or more rights. Companies that make successful use of the value that is vested in their patent and trademark rights and/or other related rights often protect their products through a combination of several different types of right. This enables them to make the most effective use of the revenue-generating potential of an innovation or a well-known trademark.
We have a well-documented track record of helping companies to maximise the financial potential of the rights they hold through a variety of different contractual agreements in Sweden and elsewhere. We draft proposals for contracts and represent client companies in their business negotiations and before courts of law and arbitration tribunals.
We have well-established links with contract lawyers in key export countries for Swedish companies.
