We deal with a wide range of contentious and non-contentious patent proceedings involving counselling in complex regulation matters; advising clients in licensing, technology transfers, freedom-to-operate issues, data exclusivity; and conducting patent litigation proceedings such as infringement, invalidity, unfair competition and negative clearance actions.
The firm’s main purpose is to cover its clients’ diverse needs in various industries by providing tailor-made and creative solutions. The firm’s dedicated service approach helps clients stand out in their respective sectors and thanks to this approach the firm is involved in cutting edge patent litigations leading to landmark decisions. We are also helping to shape the future of patent law in Turkey by assisting to industry associations to comment on draft legislation.
NSN Law Firm is very well-known for providing high quality counselling and dispute resolution services in the field of patent law. NSN has expertise in pharmaceuticals, biotechnology, medical devices, telecommunications, electronics, mechanics, chemicals and engineering.
The firm’s long-established practice in the field of life-science regulation allows the team to blend its patent litigation strategy with sectoral knowledge. The firm advises national and multinational life-science companies on a wide range of matters including licensing agreements, pricing regulations, reimbursement regulations, marketing authorisation procedures, clinical trials, observational study projects, and promotion and compliance practices. Wide regulatory experience helps the firm to evaluate patent disputes with a wider perspective and sort disputes out by using both patent law and regulatory tools. This also allows the firm to provide more cost-effective solutions, as regulatory solutions are often less costly compared with patent litigation procedures.
The patent practice is carried out by a team consisting of legal, scientific and regulatory experts with different technical and academic backgrounds. Knowing that patent litigation involves complex and technical issues, the scientific team comprises European patent attorneys, regulatory experts and competition experts. The technical team supports the legal team when drafting claims, filing applications, making patentability assessments and conducting infringement and validity analyses about the disputes.
The sub-teams dedicated to specific clients have comprehensive knowledge of clients’ needs, as they know their clients and their history very well and understand their needs. Using technological online data systems also helps the team improve collaboration, provide clarity, and achieve better results.
Since the team is fully competent in Turkish, English and French, the firm is capable of providing its services in different languages if needed.
