Patent and Utility Patent Law

We prepare and handle patent and utility patent applications in Germany and worldwide. We represent and defend your patent applications in prosecution, opposition, appeal and invalidity proceedings before the German Patent and Trademark Office, the European Patent Office, the Federal Patent Court and the Supreme Court.

We offer you a broad range of experience in the consultation of the research department and patent and legal departments of companies.

We also advise and represent medium-sized companies and corporate groups in Germany and worldwide, enforcing their patents and utility patent rights. This includes infringement expert opinions, out-of-court consultation and negotiation in infringement cases, enforcement of patent rights in court as well as defence strategies against infringement allegations. For many years, we have been supporting companies in the development of their worldwide patent portfolio and with strategies in cross-border patent infringement cases as well as trade fair injunctions at all German District Courts and Higher Regional Courts.

We also offer support in the defence against the import of patent infringing products and with initiating and conducting national and European border seizures.
