The patent is an industrial property title. Useful to the creator of an invention, it guarantees a temporary reservation of exploitation on the French territory for a period of 20 years. During this period, the patentee can prohibit any other person from exploiting the protected invention. For the inventor, this is a recognition of his inventive activity and the financial reward that comes with it.
Patent law is a branch of industrial property law that is becoming increasingly important. Numerous disputes are likely to arise in this area (patent infringement action, patent cancellation action, employee inventions, etc.). In our highly competitive society, in a context of internationalisation of the economy and dematerialisation of exchanges, patents have become a priority for any inventor wishing to protect his creation. Nevertheless, because it is a living law, in constant evolution, patent law is as complex as it is exciting. This is why we put so much energy and fervour into defending each of our cases.
At Dhenne Avocats, our activity is precisely focused on the protection of your inventions. We defend and advise our clients in all patent law disputes.
Our firm accompanies you at various stages of the protection of your industrial creations.
The first of our missions is to advise you on the best strategy to protect your innovations. Indeed, there are many ways to protect inventions. The patent is not the only way. In some cases, it may be wise to opt for contractual protection of know-how, or even a utility certificate.
