Competence in law and technology

Good ideas need protection from experts

Industrial property rights and technical innovations are closely linked. Patents, trademarks and copyrights protect and promote research and development. The legal framework thus serves economic progress and fair competition.

Our law and patent law firm was founded in 1988. Since then, we have built up outstanding expertise in all areas of industrial property law. Many years of experience meet up-to-date know-how, legal expertise meets technical understanding: attorneys at law, patent attorneys and engineers from various specialist fields work hand in hand at our law firm. Whether information technology, biotechnology, electronics, mechanical engineering or other technology-driven industries – we offer comprehensive expertise and individual solutions for our clients with a technical focus.

We understand the complex challenges associated with technical innovations and are therefore competent partners in the registration and enforcement of patents and utility models as well as in matters of trademark and copyright law – both at national and international level. As part of a global legal network, we can support our clients with cross-border issues and provide them with access to global markets.

We establish customised processes in close cooperation with our clients: We take the time to understand needs and circumstances in depth and pool all our expertise and network contacts in order to offer individual, promising solutions.

We would be pleased to inform you in detail about our services and our experience in the field of industrial property law. Secure your technological progress together with us!

Our services

Our interdisciplinary teams check in advance whether your product meets the requirements for national or international registration and provide you with competent support during the application process.
