Intellectual Property Law

We offer advice on strategies for the protection of your intellectual property including the reg-istration and enforcement of all types of intellectual property rights.

We assist you in the registration of trademarks, patents, utility patents, design patents etc. with the German Patent and Trademark Office (GPTO), the European Patent Office (EPO), the Office for Harmonisation in the Internal Market (OHIM) and the World Intellectual Property Organisation (WIPO). In cooperation with our established network of specialized international colleagues, we represent your rights around the world.

We research patents, trademarks, utility patents and design patents, and draft freedom to operate opinions.

We also develop alternative concepts to protect your work results, e.g. by confidentiality agreements and know-how and cooperation agreements. Further we develop licensing strategies and draft distribution agreements.

We enforce your intellectual property rights by litigation and out-of-court negotiations, initiate interim injunctions on trade fairs and conduct border seizure proceedings. We also defend you against infringement claims and negotiate delimitation agreements and settlement concepts.

Furthermore, we support you with the development of domain strategies and the registration of domain names worldwide, and represent you in domain disputes in domain grabbing cases.

We have established an international network of specialized IP offices working as our trusted affiliate partners offering substantiated support in all IP matters around the world.
