Patents and utility models

Patent law is a core competence of our law firm, and patent attorneys with many years of experience work at all three offices.  We employ professionals with a broad range of expertise in all technical fields.

Initially, we provide you with legal advice for developing a protection strategy that best fits your needs.  On the basis of this strategy we prepare patent and utility model applications, which we then obtain the respective industrial property right for from the German Patent and Trade Mark Office or the European Patent Office.

We also defend industrial property rights issued to you or challenge competitors’ industrial property rights you object to by means of opposition and revocation proceedings.

Our field of activity also includes conducting and assessing searches, monitoring competitors’ industrial property rights, paying maintenance fees worldwide, and preparing expert opinions in the field of patent and utility model law.
