Patents & Uti­li­ty Models - Pro­tec­ting invest­ments and ensu­ring free­dom to operate

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.

Deve­lo­p­ment

We assist you in buil­ding IP port­fo­li­os of high stra­te­gic value to pro­tect and main­tain your inno­va­ti­ve expertise.
