Intellectual Property Rights
We develop strategies, together with you and based on your ideas and objectives, for legally protecting your products and business activities. When it comes to achieving your business goals, we consider ourselves to be a long-term partner who offers you individual and personal support as well as comprehensive advice, from a single source.
In addition to global registration of property rights, our work self-evidently also covers maintenance, defence and enforcement of property rights and support for all issues associated with industrial property rights, such as assessment and legal advice for licensing, purchase and sale.
Patents and utility models
It all begins with systematic analysis of your new ideas and products. We compare the key technical aspects requiring protection with the state of the art and define goals and claims. We draw up the patent or utility model application and guide it through the national and international examination and registration procedures until the patent is granted or the utility model is registered.
We defend your patents and utility models against third party attacks, whether in the form of opposition proceedings, cancellation proceedings or nullity proceedings, from the Patent Office up the Federal Supreme Court.
Our advice on trademark law starts at the very beginning, with finding a name and trademark design. We offer you support in developing protectable trademarks and in taking existing third party rights into consideration early on. We do the necessary researches and provide you with assessments of pre-existing rights. We develop an application strategy that is tailored to your needs and global, if necessary, and carry out the required national and international application procedures. Furthermore, we defend your trademarks against third party attacks, such as in opposition and cancellation proceedings.
Starting with expert evaluation of the new design, we choose the suitable forms of representation and illustrations for optimum design protection, specific to the country, create the necessary drawings or photographs and carry out the official application and registration procedures for you, not just in Germany and Europe, but throughout the world.
