Firm Overview:


With their ideas, inventors transcend existing boundaries. We protect and defend innovations – systematically and across all borders.

For a new idea to translate into a tangible and successful invention, it must first make the transition from theory to practice, and then it must prove itself – here effective protection from imitation is paramount.

Intellectual property rights such as patents, utility models, designs and trademarks protect your invention and help you to secure a share in the market. They serve as a strategic defence against imitators and as protection for innovations. All-round security can only be achieved when intellectual property rights are effectively implemented – both offensively and defensively.

Since the foundation of our company in 1983, we have concerned ourselves in equal parts with the enforcement, defence and prosecution of intellectual property rights. We deploy all our firm’s technical and legal expertise in the effort to protect our clients’ innovations and ideas.

Decades of profound experience in the enforcement of property rights can be wisely used to the benefit of our clients during the initial stage of procuring protective rights. Mastery over all aspects of a dispute involving property rights has one decisive advantage: knowing both – the attackers and the infringers side/work.

We have played a successful role, and continue to do so, in many, sometimes ground-breaking proceedings – both nationally and internationally – on behalf of corporations, companies and inventors.
