Create a distinctive profile!

Trademarks and labels give products and services an “identity” – they give companies a distinctive profile and guide consumer decision-making.

The more significant the trademark relevance, the greater the risk of imitation. Trademark infringements and plagiarism are a major economic problem. The European Union Intellectual Property Office estimates that sales losses amount to billions.

With our experts in trademark and labelling law at your side, you will find the right solution to protect your intellectual property. Trademark law gives you the opportunity to intervene effectively in the event of infringements of property rights. Whether registering a trademark, protecting geographical indications of source, registering company names or work titles – we provide you with legally secure support for all relevant steps.

This also includes early searches in order to specifically avoid collisions with older trademark rights. For international trademark applications, we advise you on how you can efficiently use existing protection systems such as the EU trademark system or the Madrid trademark system. These systems allow you to protect your trademarks and labels in several countries in Europe or even worldwide.

Registered trademarks grant an exclusive right of use. This enables companies to set themselves apart from competitors. The promise of quality associated with a trademark builds consumer trust. In contrast to other industrial property rights, trademark protection is not limited in time, but is valid “forever” as long as the fees are paid. This makes it possible to establish a trademark in the long term.

Companies must actively monitor their trademarks in order to recognise and combat infringements by third parties at an early stage and thus avert damage. Our law firm has search tools at its disposal that detect trademark piracy or unfair competition both nationally and internationally.

In the event of trademark disputes – lawsuits, warnings or other legal disputes – you can rely on the expertise of our experienced attorneys in trademark law. Thanks to our international network of attorneys, we can also support you in cases of trademark infringement in other EU countries and internationally.
