Offense plus defense


​As intellectual property is growing in economic importance, so is the number of legal disputes involving patents, trademarks, domain names, service marks or registered designs (formerly known as "design patents"). In matters involving patents and utility models we represent our clients in opposition, cancellation and patent infringement proceedings, and draft opinions on the validity of intellectual property rights and on infringements of intellectual property rights. We represent our clients before the German Patent and Trademark Office, European Patent Office, Federal Patent Office and Federal Supreme Court.
