Oppositions & Litigation Support
Due Diligence and Opinions
Eliezri Intellectual Property strives to be a well-balanced law firm, providing a broad range of services. We are leaders in each of the areas in which we practice. These include patent drafting, patent prosecution, oppositions and litigation support, due diligence, legal opinions, trademarks and designs.
In particular, our firm focuses its attention on the patent applications of our client’s competitors throughout the world. In order to expose at an early stage the weaknesses of such patent applications, we actively interfere legally in the processes of prosecution for our client’s benefit. We collaborate and assist in opposition proceedings in Europe and the US.
Eliezri Intellectual Property is known for its successful collaboration with commercial and litigation law firms for its client’s benefits. This collaboration is possible because we speak legal language as well as live in the world of technology.
Eliezri Intellectual Property believes that the drafting of a patent application is the most crucial phase of securing patent rights. Accordingly, in addition to technologically proficient patent attorneys, an experienced legal advocate is always involved in the drafting of patent applications.
Our Patent Attorneys have experience drafting patent applications in various fields, particularly in the fields of exact sciences, including Physics, Electronics, Mechanics, Optics, Engineering, Software, Communication, Medical Devices, and National Security.
Our clients choose us over our competitors because our patents have proved themselves in court.
Eliezri Intellectual Property is experienced with prosecuting patents, designs, trademarks and copyright in Israel and abroad. We know how to concentrate our efforts to get you the best legal coverage available for your intellectual property. Our work is held to a consistently high level of quality, by allocating a team of professionals for each and every task.
We adopted the style of patent prosecution from our colleagues in the US. Recently the changing Israeli law, the reorganization at the Israeli patent authority and the fact that Israel has now become recognized as an international searching and examining authority of the PCT created a significant change in the Israeli processes.

Trademarks are part of a more general realm of protecting reputation and false commercial practices. It involves a myriad of interlaced legal rights. These rights can be copyrights, trade secrets, commercial torts, consumer rights, geographical indications, industrial designs and unjust enrichment. The registration of a mark has to be considered in view of all of these rights.
The ever changing technological world creates additional challenges. New trends require new approaches when trying to protect the symbol that represents your company; for example three dimensional marks, sounds and music, slogans, colors and new animations. Today a company’s trademark can even be a short film first appearing on YouTube.
Eliezri Intellectual Property enjoys over two decades of actively practicing procurement and enforcement of a variety of intellectual property trademarks and related rights.
Israel is a member of the Madrid Protocol and is a party to multi lateral agreements facilitating the protection of trademarks and related rights in multiple jurisdictions. We coordinate registrations worldwide through international authorities or through our network of dedicated foreign associates.
Industrial design is a complementary registration of an intellectual property subject that can also be a copyright, utility patent, trademark or commercial tort.
Each country and legal jurisdictions have adopted varying systems to protect industrial designs. In Israel, the registration of an industrial design is particularly efficient, simple and saves money. It should be noted that when a design is eligible to be protected as an industrial design, it cannot enjoy the protection of Israeli copyright law.
