Patent Prosecution
Our expertise ranges from strategic patent consulting during all phases of product development and obtaining technical property rights in Germany and Europe to building up and administering worldwide patent portfolios.
Patents and utility models grant a position of monopoly to the proprietor. However, the applicant usually has only one attempt. As soon as an application for a patent is filed, one can - in a procedure for examination or registration as well as in a possibly upcoming procedure of nullity or cancellation - only revert to subject matter, which has already been disclosed in the application documents at the original filing date. Therefore, providing an accurate elaboration for filing patents and utility models as well as a thoughtful prosecution during the examination or registration procedure is very important regarding the value of technical property rights.



The expertise of our firm ranges from consulting in patent and strategic aspects during all phases of product development - for example to identify inventions, which are worth to protect - and the obtainment of technical property rights in Germany and Europe to building up and administering worldwide patent portfolios.

Our patent attorneys support both internationally active enterprises and start-ups. In order to comprehend an invention in a technical manner, they thereby revert to their technical knowledge accumulated in science and/or industry. Moreover, in order to identify the core of the inventive matter, to define a broad range of protection and to present further aspects of the invention shown in its description, they introduce their scientific ability for abstraction. For this purpose, our attorneys benefit from their double experience in conducting both prosecution procedures and litigation procedures. In this manner, they are enabled to account for future specifics of a case already during the drafting of an application. Thus, problems regarding the later enforcement and/or defence of technical property rights can be avoided from the beginning.
