To meet these challenges, some 50 IP specialists will be working with you to develop a genuine offensive and defensive strategy for all your creations: trademarks, patents, copyrights, designs, drawings and models.
Whether on a daily basis or in the context of complex operations, our teams will scrutinize your commercial strategy, your environment and your businesses, in order to provide the most suitable solutions, upstream and downstream of your projects: they will review your creations, make financial evaluations, enter into negotiations, write up operating agreements, carry out filing and monitoring, and handle French, EU and foreign litigation.
Our intellectual property practice, the use of the entire firm's expertise and the engineering capabilities of Fidal Innovation's teams guarantee comprehensive, personalized advice suited to your situation. Our goal: to provide you with a comprehensive service offer that is unrivalled in France.
Fidal and the teams of engineers at Fidal Innovation offer you a complete range of products and operational solutions for the protection, enhancement and defense of your patents. We are recognized for our assistance in patentability matters: we identify innovations, draft patent applications, carry out examination and opposition procedures, and conduct FTO studies. We also advise companies on a daily basis on how to use their patents (licensing agreements, R&D, collaborative contracts, non-disclosure agreements, trade secrets, know-how, etc.) and defend and protect patents both in France and abroad.
Due to technological change, copyright is more than ever part of a company's IP strategy. New digitized promotional techniques, the lack of formalism in creations and a reversed burden of proof further weaken this right, which is often inadequately protected.
At Fidal, we place copyrights at the core of the business environment to better enhance their value. Our teams know your business and are highly knowledgeable about IT. They will assist you from the audit of the existing system to the definition of acquisitions and internal creation processes to the negotiation and drafting of contracts to the defense and protection of your rights (investigation, counterfeiting, unfair competition, etc.) anywhere in the world.
