Fields of Work
We advise our domestic and foreign clients in all areas of intellectual property rights. One focus is the preparation, filing, and prosecution of patent and, where applicable, utility model applications as well as trademarks and design applications in Germany, Switzerland and abroad. The grant procedure before the German Patent Office, the European Patent Office, the European Trademark Office (European Office for Harmonization in the Internal Market), the World Intellectual Property Organization and the Swiss Federal Institute, we conduct directly. In cooperation with foreign associates worldwide, we also obtain rights for our clients in foreign countries.
In the case of attacks or charges (oppositions, nullity or cancellation proceedings), we defend the rights of our clients and, vice versa, we conduct such proceedings for our clients up to the final decision.
In the case of property rights infringements, we cooperate with experienced general law offices.
We also advise and represent our clients in licensing negotiations and related licensing and know-how agreements, and in the field of employee inventions.
Our technical area of activity covers the whole field of technology, with the exception of genetic engineering, biology and chemistry.
