Legal Expertise

Patent and utility model protection

Innovations need protection. Protection needs IP competence. We offer both technical and legal expertise at the highest level. Our applications are not only prepared with a focus on the smoothest possible patent granting procedure, but also with a view to the "serious case", i.e. their enforceability in patent infringement proceedings and their validity in nullity proceedings. 

You will benefit from our modern and efficient workflows, whether you are a start-up, an SME or a large company.

Expertise

As your IP partner, we know the value of precisely formulated claims and carefully drafted applications. Our extensive experience from patent nullity and infringement proceedings already flows into the drafting of patent and utility model applications. 

We carefully and efficiently guide your patent application through the examination process and make every effort to ensure that the scope of protection of the granted patent optimally reflects our clients' invention. Our conscientious drafting of patent and utility model applications, as well as the prudent conduct of grant and registration proceedings significantly help in determining the value of the granted patent or registered utility model.


Concept

Our expertise covers patent law and strategy consulting in all phases of product development: Starting with the identification of inventions worthy of protection, through the drafting and obtaining of technical IP rights in Germany, Europe, and the rest of the world, to the management of worldwide patent portfolios. 

In addition, we develop tailor-made IP solutions or application strategies suitable for the mass market in close coordination with our clients' wishes and needs. We can also assist you in setting up your own in-house patent department or take on the role of an external patent department.
