Being sued for patent infringement by a competitor is costly and has the potential to significantly disrupt business operations. Patent non-infringement, invalidity, and unenforceability opinions contain a detailed assessment of competitors’ patents and provide a legal basis for avoiding patent infringement in order to minimize the infringement risk associated with launching a new product, service, or manufacturing process. Florek & Endres has prepared patent non-infringement, invalidity, and unenforceability opinions for clients across a broad array of industries with extensive experience providing opinions to the generic pharmaceuticals industry.
Our opinion practice is focused on providing a thorough and reasoned approach to patent infringement, validity, and enforceability issues. Our analysis aims to consider potential non-infringement, invalidity, and unenforceability positions from all relevant angles and in light of recent case law with an eye toward innovative legal theories when called for in a particular case.
