We examine your ideas and developments in detail with regard to aspects worthy of protection together with you. Subsequently, we present you with the strategy for optimal protection.

For patent and utility model applications as technical property rights, we prepare the application consisting of claims, the description and computer- aided drawings.

A prior art search will clarify the novelty and inventive step of your invention.

We are also committed to representing you in the event of infringement of your property rights, oppositions or nullity proceedings.

For design applications, we are able to create computer-aided representations of the design, also in 3D. Of course, we can also carry out searches for pre- existing design protection.

In the case of trade mark applications, we first check whether the trade mark meets the criteria for registration. As a matter of principle, a search for earlier rights is carried out in order to prevent disputes as far as possible. The list of goods is drawn up in consultation with you. We are also happy to represent you in the event of oppositions.

From the idea to the preparation of the application documents to the granting of an IP right, we accompany you as a reliable partner. We will also represent you in oppositions, nullity or infringement proceedings.

Our range of services not only includes comprehensive advice on German IP rights; rather, our core competence also lies in obtaining IP rights abroad, be it regionally via the European Patent Office, European Union Intellectual Property Office (EuIPO) or internationally via WIPO in Geneva as well as nationally via correspondent attorneys in the individual countries.

We also draw up contracts for you, in particular licence agreements, priority or co-existence agreements and non-disclosure agreements. Furthermore, our range of services includes the translation of intellectual property rights, advice in relation to the German Employee Invention Act, fee monitoring, expert opinions, as well as the monitoring of third party intellectual property rights.
