How we can help you

 

As Patent Attorneys, we are your partners for all questions relating to patents, utility models, trade marks and designs. Thanks to our many years of professional experience we can provide comprehensive, individual advice on these intellectual property rights and related themes. We safeguard your intellectual property at national and international level by registering property rights, by enforcing these rights and defending them against unauthorised use by third parties. We can represent you and your interests before the German Patent and Trade Mark Office (DPMA), the Federal Patent Court (BPatG), the Federal Office for Plant Varieties, the European Patent Office (EPO), the European Union Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO) and other international authorities of commercial legal protection as well as, in special cases, before the Federal High Court (BGH).

In particular, our services comprise:

  • research and expert assessments to establish the viability of a new intellectual property registration, or to establish whether a product you are planning infringes on existing intellectual property rights of third parties

  • drafting and submitting applications for intellectual property rights as well as representation before the relevant authorities during the examination or registration procedure

  • defending registered property rights during opposition proceedings, cancellation or nullity proceedings

  • administrative matters relating to your property rights (e.g. making sure deadlines are met, paying annual fees or renewal fees)

  • pursuing property right infringements as well as defending against unjustified claims of third parties relating to intellectual property rights

  • drafting and closure of licence contracts, prior claim agreements and amicable settlements.
