Competition & Property Rights
Specialists in industrial property law and competition law
In an increasingly fierce competitive environment, it is vital for companies to position themselves optimally and stand out from their competitors. Industrial property law and copyright law offer the means to achieve this.
We can support you in the development of trademark strategies and secure them by registering and defending the corresponding property rights. Trademark administration is one of our core areas of expertise. We optimize your opportunities and reduce your risks in the drafting and negotiation of license and usage rights agreements.
We support you in the development of advertising strategies, check whether your planned claims and packaging are feasible and, where necessary, suggest legally watertight alternatives.
It goes without saying that we can also defend your interests effectively in the event of a dispute. In the event that your company is hit with a warning or preliminary injunction, we will advise you comprehensively on all possible courses of action and help you develop defense strategies that are optimal and economically viable for your company.
If your property rights are infringed, we will take all necessary steps at the earliest opportunity to scrupulously safeguard your interests. In each case, the specific factual and legal situation will determine whether we initiate legal action immediately (e.g. by way of a preliminary injunction) or contact the infringer first (usually by way of a warning). In any case, injunctive relief is the first priority.
Our scope of action is not limited to Germany; in fact, we maintain an extensive worldwide network of skilled attorneys who can file national trademark applications or prosecute property right infringements on your behalf. We focus on maintaining intensive cooperation with our colleagues and coordinating all important steps with you.
In addition to the comprehensive legal advisory services described above, we can also offer further services, e.g. lectures and training events for your employees and regular in-house seminars on topical issues. Feel free to get in touch!
