Dispute Resolution and Litigation

We have a team of skilled litigation and dispute resolution attorneys throughout our offices. In Denmark, AWA handles litigation matters through our dedicated firm AWA Law.

IP litigation is complex. Adopting, pursuing and when called for modifying an effective litigation strategy requires a deep understanding of the type of IP involved, how it plays out in a procedural context as well as considering the commercial realities that the parties will experience under different scenarios.

AWA has an excellent track record both enforcing IP and defending infringement actions. Our litigators are experienced in all types of IP disputes including patent, trademark, trade secret, copyright, domain name, IP related contracts, marketing practices and unfair competition.

The team regularly appears before national courts at all levels including the Patent and Market Court in Sweden, the Maritime and Commercial Court in Denmark and the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU).

We support you at every stage of your dispute, drawing on the deep technical and sector-specific knowledge of our IP professionals. We combine this with the legal and strategic expertise of our attorneys at law to bring you a bespoke team that will support you to secure the most commercially effective outcome.

This approach saves time and economic resources by providing a comprehensive team. From global healthcare and pharmaceutical, high technology including fiber optic communications and AI to industrial and mechanical engineering – our industry and sector knowledge is unparalleled.


Oppositions against patents and trademarks require a tailored and pragmatic defence approach. At the same, filing oppositions as a third party should consider the commercial aims and anticipated outcomes.

AWA has an extensive team of European patent and trademark attorneys as well as China qualified patent attorneys that can help you strategically navigate oppositions and appeals before national IP offices, the Boards of Appeal of the EUIPO and the EPO.
