What can we do for you?

As patent attorneys, we're the people to turn to with all questions relating to patents, utility models, trade marks and designs. Thanks to our many years of professional experience we can provide comprehensive, individual advice on these industrial property rights and related themes.

An overview of our services:

  • We safeguard your intellectual property at national and international level by registering industrial property rights, by enforcing these rights and defending them against unauthorised use by third parties.

  • We can represent you and your interests before the German Patent and Trade Mark Office (DPMA), the Federal Patent Court (BPatG), the Federal Office for Plant Varieties, the European Patent Office (EPO), the European Union Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO, formerly OHIM) and other international authorities of commercial legal protection as well as, in special cases, before the German Federal High Court (BGH).

  • We research and prepare expert assessments to establish the viability of a new industrial property registration, or to establish whether a product you are planning infringes on existing property rights of third parties.

  • We draft your application for a property right and ensure its submission as well as representation before the relevant authority during the examination or registration procedure.

  • We defend registered property rights during opposition proceedings, cancellation or nullity proceedings

  • We take care of the administration of your property rights (e.g. making sure deadlines are met, paying annual fees or renewal fees)

  • We deal with the drafting and closure of licence contracts, prior claim agreements and amicable settlements.

  • Furthermore we pursue property right infringements as well as defending against unjustified claims of third parties relating to intellectual property rights

  • We provide you with detailed information relating to employee inventions

  • In addition, a network of patent attorneys and lawyer colleagues is available to assist in Germany and abroad, as necessary.

  • In collaboration with the Patent- und Innovations-Centrum Bielefeld GmbH (PIC) we accompany you through the patent funding programme WIPANO, a programme from the German Federal Ministry for Economy and Energy (BMWi).

  • We offer seminars and lectures focussing on patents and/or trademarks (introduction to the different types of property right / research options / strategy) as training for your employees. These can be organised in our offices, or as in-house training at your company.
