Sophie Lawrance interviewed by Financier Worldwide on best practice in licensing disputes


Competition expert Sophie Lawrance was interviewed by Financier Worldwide in an article, appearing in their February 2021 issue, about litigation related to FRAND licensing.

Sophie made three key recommendations on the best practice to follow in case of FRAND disputes: try to reduce over-declaration of standard essential patents, so that the total patent landscape is clearer to all involved; avoid racing to court, and encourage meaningful negotiation; and finally put in place appropriate dispute resolution mechanisms for lower-value disputes.
