Infringement and Validity Opinions

At Chernoff Vilhauer, we understand the importance of conducting thorough analyses and obtaining professional opinions regarding infringement and validity matters.  Our firm specializes in providing expert guidance to clients who are seeking to enter established markets while avoiding potential infringements on other companies’ intellectual property.

Our experienced attorneys conduct in-depth analyses of other parties’ positions, evaluating the validity and scope of their intellectual property.  By thoroughly examining the intellectual property landscape, we provide clients with a clear understanding of potential risks and infringement issues they may encounter.

Based on our analysis, we recommend specific non-infringing product designs that allow clients to enter the market with confidence.  Our goal is to ensure that our clients’ products and innovations do not encroach upon existing intellectual property rights, protecting them from potential legal disputes and associated expenses.

In cases where potential infringements are identified, we assist clients in negotiating and obtaining licenses from intellectual property holders.  Our skilled attorneys work diligently to secure the necessary permissions and agreements to allow clients to proceed with their business activities while respecting the rights of other intellectual property owners.

If the potential for trademark infringement is identified, we offer guidance in selecting a different trademark that is distinct and does not conflict with existing marks.  Our firm helps clients navigate the complex landscape of trademarks to ensure their branding is unique, memorable, and legally protected.
