Together, the attorneys of our firm possess more than 100 years of experience in intellectual property law. Through the combination of legal expertise and technical skills, we cover all facets of intellectual property law and its related fields – from patents and utility models, to design rights and copyrights, to trademarks and business signs, including the related issues of unfair competition law.

We take ourselves to be a strategic, long-term partner and consultant to our clients. Aside from the safeguarding of our clients through their intellectual property rights, the emphasis of our daily work also includes defending these rights forcefully and comprehensively – which also encompasses international and cross-border matters. Another part of our daily work is the prosecution and coordination of out-of-court and legal infringement proceedings in Germany and Europe, as well as in focus markets such as China and the United States. In the fight against product piracy, we work together internationally with various state agencies and customs authorities, prosecute border seizure actions and have a worldwide network of investigators and local counsel.

Numerous companies, from international conglomerates to mid-size firms, place trust in our expertise and charge us with the on-going protection of their intellectual property rights.
