Conflict of interests.
Updated: Jun 4, 2019
General, patent and trademark attorneys have a duty to avoid any situation that might impair their abilities to be advocates for their clients. This premise has been defined in detail by the Polish Chamber of Patents Attorneys` Code of Ethics and Professional Responsibility.
The conflict-searching process starts when you contact IntellectPol to discuss a potential client relationship, we will first conduct a conflicts check. The employee of IntellectPol searches our database to find the conflict of interests of the potential client. If a conflict exists, we inform potential client about this situation. We inform potential client that we represent (or we have represented) a competitor or a firm specializing in the same field of science or industry during trademark filing, EP validation procedure or any other patent, design or trademark application procedures or litigation and in our opinion exists the conflict of interests because of this situation.
No confidential information will be gathered in the case of identification that the conflict of interests exist.
