Insurance and confidentiality

It can be costly and difficult to maintain your rights, particularly if your opponent has substantial financial resources.

Nowadays there are different insurance policies for intellectual property disputes. An insurance policy can help you with legal costs in a patent dispute and, in that way, make you more equal to your opponent.

You should make enquiries with different insurance companies, patent agents and innovation actors to get advice. Remember that it can be good to have a confidentiality agreement if you need to disclose non-public information.
