Given that truly effective patent advice requires a combination of both legal and scientific analysis, together with commercial application, our team, comprising IP specialists and patent attorneys, many of whom are science graduates, is uniquely positioned as a true "one-stop shop" in Israel for patent protection and enforcement.
Indeed, not only has our patent practice been described by Intellectual Asset Management 1000 as "the only Israeli full-service law firm offering a major, fully realised patent practice" it is also regularly ranked in the top tier by Chambers Global and Legal 500 as well as specialist trade publications, including Managing Intellectual Property and Patent Litigation 250.
Our team has unrivalled experience of litigating patents before the Israeli courts and before the Israeli Patent Office, advising on patent infringement, opposition procedures, validity issues, patentability and claims for compensation by current and former employees in respect of patentable inventions created during the course of their employment.
On the non-contentious side we handle all aspects of the commercialisation of patents at every stage of the innovation cycle, including non-disclosure agreements, R&D agreements, patent licences and manufacturing agreements. We have extensive experience advising on patent issues arising in corporate transactions, in particular conducting legal diligence of patent-related issues in the financing of technology and innovation companies, mergers, acquisitions, business sales and patent portfolio acquisitions.
We advise clients from a wide range of sectors including pharmaceuticals, biotechnology, genetics, medical devices, biomedical products, electrical engineering, chemical engineering, mechanical engineering, telecommunications, computer software and computer-implemented inventions and agro-chemicals.
We have been at the forefront of changes in patent law and practice for over 50 years and our practitioners continue to lead the way in their involvement in the legislative process.
