Design & Technical Inventions

Business names and brands, but also technical inventions and special designs are exceptionally important assets for companies. They are of central importance for how a company is perceived in the market and thus for its success. Thus it is equally important to protect these assets as well as possible and defend them against attacks by third parties.

That is why we develop strategies for optimum protection of your intellectual property and implement them efficiently. We register national, European and international trademarks, industrial designs and utility models for you and represent you in opposition, nullity or cancellation proceedings. That means that you no longer have to worry about complying with deadlines and all of the other formalities – we handle all brand management for you. Moreover, we have a global network of specialized colleagues at our disposal, so that, in cooperation with them, we can also protect your rights abroad.

If third parties infringe on your trademarks, industrial designs or utility models, we use cease-and-desist letters and temporary injunction proceedings to enforce your rights quickly and efficiently.

It is equally important to avoid infringement of third-party industrial property rights, because this can entail very substantial damage claims. That is why we conduct corresponding research for you and advise you which names, brands, industrial designs and utility models you may and may not use. If a third party asserts claims against you, we defend your interests in court or reach the best possible solutions in out-of-court negotiations.

Finally, we support you when it comes to licensing industrial property rights and implementing brand cooperations by negotiating and drafting the corresponding contracts.
