How does the service take place?


During the initial consultation, we will discuss circumstances and details of the case, the client´s expectations and requirements, positions and argumentations of all parties and available evidence. 

Legal assessment

We will assess the evidence, and if needed, we will compile case law from similar cases and/or provide expert opinions, such as evaluation of intellectual property rights, quantifying damages or assessing the question of potential patent infringement.  

Extrajudicial proceedings

In certain cases, it may be possible to achieve amicable solution of an impending or ongoing dispute through extrajudicial means, if it is possible and/or available. We will represent you in negotiations with the opposing party with the objective of reaching an amicable settlement without the need for litigation, and we will prepare all necessary documentation.

Representation in proceedings

We will represent you in legal proceedings, whether you are the plaintiff or defendant. Throughout the proceedings, we will consult the case with you on a regular basis in order to develop a suitable strategy, the most effective arguments, the presentation of relevant evidence, the assertion of appropriate claims in the lawsuit, and remedies. We will assess the appropriateness of filing a request for a preliminary injunction if there is a need for interim adjustments to the parties' relations or if there is a concern that the enforcement of a court decision may be jeopardized.

Enforcement of judgments

We will provide you with services related to the enforcement of judgments or the protection of intellectual property rights after the conclusion of legal proceedings in cases where the opposing party fails to respect the court's decision

Evaluating Collaboration: Testimonials

THK Legal is a team of reliable experts who have been taking care of the majority of our trademark portfolio for several years. They assisted us in integrating Vitana and Hamé companies and in establishing Orkla Foods in the Czech Republic and Slovakia. With their advice, they never leave us, even in situations where we intend to leave the territory due to the adverse local legislation. They are with us in the context of our new acquisitions and divestments. I appreciate how they can combine a 'craftsman-like approach' to everyday operations with creativity in non-standard situations (e.g., legal disputes) – and unlike other large firms, their ego still fits through the door! I value that they respect our rapidly changing priorities and adjust their advice and recommendations accordingly.

"I had the honour of collaborating with Ms. Traplova on my authorial projects. I greatly appreciate her professional approach, coupled with her humanity, which made me, as a client without a legal background, always feel like an equal partner—someone whose voice is heard and whose project matters sincerely to Ms. Traplova. Her selfless support for young creators and their activities is admirable, and unlike others, she does not flaunt it overtly; rather, she is a silent philanthropist. For all of this, she has my deep admiration. If you are in search of an expert who can boast precision, reliability, and humanity, I wholeheartedly recommend Ms. Jana Traplova.
