‘I am mainly engaged in unearthing public information. At Patentwerk, I can carry on working, undisturbed and in a concentrated manner. Fortunately, this is varied now and then with eating cakes together – which is just as fun.’
The expertises of Fleur
For the patent attorneys, but also directly for clients, Fleur conducts research in public publications.
For example, a regular request is to research whether an invention has already been made public before the patent attorney writes the patent application.
In addition, some companies are curious about the patent applications of their competitors. Fleur creates patent monitors of a branch or of a list of competitors.
Sometimes there is a wish to investigate whether a competitor’s patent right can be declared invalid through an invalidity procedure. Part of the research therefore consists of locating damaging publications from before the application date of the relevant patent being investigated.
In the past, Fleur has done a great deal of patent research in the area of agricultural machines, greenhouse cultivation and tyre-construction machinery.
