A world-leading nutrition, health and wellness company

If this client is to continue to enjoy the freedom required to develop and improve their clinical nutrition products, they will need us to continue to file oppositions against granted patents and keep on top of pending applications within the related series of three patent families. 

So far we have filed oppositions against four patents in the series and filed third party observations on another pending application.  This is critical to our client as these patents will block their freedom-to-operate in the field of clinical nutrition, a competitive market in which other multinational corporations fight tirelessly to retain let alone grow their market share.

To make it easier for the client we ask for nothing more from them than the results of their prior art searches.  From there we formulate a complete opposition without the client having to invest any additional time or effort.  

We know this more independent and commercial approach delivers significant value to the client and allows us to differentiate ourselves from many other firms who still require detailed input from instructing counsel.
