Areas of Practice

  • Litigation

    We conduct patent revocation actions in the courts of the principal patent jurisdictions in Europe on behalf of our clients, who have the option to remain anonymous.

  • Mediation

    While our main area of expertise is litigation, at Skepsis we recognize that this is not always the right approach and there may be alternative ways to resolve disputes between patent-owners and potential licensees.

  • Patent Portfolio Analysis

    We can carry out a full technical and legal analysis of portfolios as a backdrop to our strategic portfolio assessments. This enables our clients to make truly informed choices.

  • Strategic Advice

    We integrate extensive experience of European and international patent-prosecution, litigation and licensing to give you the best strategic advice when it comes to building or monetizing a patent-portfolio.



Skepsis Telecom is a ‘strawman’ patent revocation company that assists manufacturers in dealing with the many bad European and national patents that have been granted in the telecoms and computers spaces.

It is a fact that, of all of the patents asserted in the so-called ‘mobile-phone wars’, very few have survived a revocation actions in the English Patents Court. The revocation rate is similar in the German Federal Patents Court. As patent-owners usually only assert their strongest patents, it is safe to say that the vast majority of European telecoms and computer patents are invalid as granted.
