LITIGATION & ARBITRATION
As a patent law firm with a strong legal focus, DTS has always focused on the enforcement of intellectual property rights. Here DTS helps the patent holders to emforce their rights before the civil courts in a speedy procedure. In addition to the proceedings before German patent litigation chambers and the OLG, DTS is also well positioned for the new patent court at the UPC.
DTS is particularly well known for successfully defending against patent infringement proceedings and for coordinating parallel proceedings in other European countries. Especially in the dual patent system in Germany (infringement court – federal patent court), DTS supports the client with the necessary specialist knowledge and the tactical considerations resulting from this system. By dealing creatively with possible defense options, also from the EPC, DTS often succeeds in bringing cases that appear hopeless at first glanceto the satisfaction of the client to a happy end.
DTS advises on out-of-court as well as in pre-trial procedures, the tactical attitude in court proceedings, the parallel objection or nullity proceedings, the enforcement of judgments and any accompanying settlement negotiations that may be ongoing. DTS also acts for clients in arbitration proceedings before the arbitral tribunals. For DTS, the focus of action is always the (economic) interests of the client.
