Inventions may be protected as patents if they are new, inventive and susceptible of industrial application. European patents with effect in Greece, as well as Greek Patents, give the patent holder an exclusive right to prohibit any third party from using the patented invention without his consent. These rights are enforced in proceedings before the Civil Courts. Our law office represents our clients’ legal interests where their patents are infringed or where they are accused of infringing third-party patent rights.
Patents are filed in Greece before the Industrial Property Organization (OBI). Our office provides all services related to Patents, such as the filing thereof, the recordal of changes (change of name, change of address, license, assignment, merger) and the related validity proceedings before the Administrative Courts and Civil Courts.
