The purpose of this Guide is to provide valuable information and tips to foreign practitioners when their clients face a legal issue in the European Union in relation with intellectual property, information technology and, in general, innovation.
Whether the client is currently engaged in litigation or is contemplating this option, this Guide will help foreign practitioners to understand better how such litigation will take place.
Also, the Guide is of valuable help in order to assess the chances of success by understanding better the material rules of law at stake, whether as a plaintiff or a defendant.
As far as possible, the authors have tried to make it comprehensible for any foreign lawyer, regardless his or her country of origin. The reader will hopefully obtain useful insights on the basics and some more detailed analysis of the subjects addressed.
As far as possible,  we have included the case law from the European Court of Justice.
As a guide, it obviously cannot deal in great depth with all subjects, nor can it cover every area encompassed by this broad field.
It is written primarily for lawyers but it is also aimed at business owners and directors.
This Guide is a result of 20+ years spent by the Group helping clients and foreign practitioners dealing with IT & IP litigation in Europe.
Should you need more information in a concrete case, feel free to call the relevant contact/author or send an email. We can probably help you too.
