Acqui­si­ti­on — Defen­se — Licensing

With about 70 patent attor­neys and IP pro­fes­sio­nals from various tech­ni­cal fiel­ds throughout Euro­pe, sup­por­ted by about 150 high­ly qua­li­fied pro­fes­sio­nals in the fiel­ds of search, tech­ni­cal drawings and trans­la­ti­ons, among others, we not only have a broad tech­ni­cal and legal know-how, but can also offer addi­tio­nal ser­vices such as patent and trade­mark sear­ches. We cover all topics of intel­lec­tu­al, in particular:

Patents & Uti­li­ty Models

Tech­ni­cal IP rights are among the most important instru­ments of our modern eco­no­my – for inno­va­ti­on lea­ders and for pro­vi­ders of alter­na­ti­ve solu­ti­ons. Patents and uti­li­ty models not only pro­tect invest­ments in rese­arch and deve­lo­p­ment, they are also cru­cial when free­dom to ope­ra­te is at stake

Trade­marks

Trade­marks evo­ke emo­ti­ons and bring pro­ducts to life. Trade­marks make your goods and ser­vices reco­gniz­ab­le and are syn­onyms for the good repu­ta­ti­on of your com­pa­ny. No com­pro­mi­ses – your trade­marks are worth pro­fes­sio­nal pro­tec­tion against imi­ta­ti­on and dilution.

Designs

Good design com­bi­nes aes­the­tics and func­tio­n­a­li­ty. Good design makes pro­ducts uni­que and reco­gniz­ab­le. Good design will attract imi­ta­tors – we pro­tect good design.

Employee Inven­ti­ons

The Ger­man law on employee inven­ti­ons offers par­ti­cu­lar chal­len­ges for entre­pre­neurs. Pro­blems often ari­se years after an inven­ti­on has been dis­c­lo­sed. Con­trac­tu­al arran­ge­ments at an ear­ly sta­ge can avoid dis­pu­tes later on.

Licen­sing

IP rights are pro­hi­bi­ti­on rights – they pro­hi­bit use. Why not allow use in return for a licen­se fee? Con­ta­ct us – we will help you to draft fruit­ful licen­se agreements.

Liti­ga­ti­on

If intel­lec­tu­al pro­per­ty rights are infrin­ged, con­si­derable values are often at sta­ke for the pro­per­ty right hol­der and the alle­ged infrin­ger. Our inter­na­tio­nal liti­ga­ti­on team led by patent attor­ney Ulrich Kreut­zer knows not only the rules, but also the exceptions.
