Supported by 500+ colleagues throughout the firm, we stand for broad-based and highly integrated legal advice. We advise in close cooperation with our other practice groups on complex transactions, digital projects and contracts in Germany and abroad, trade mark, competition and copyright law matters, patent and licensing disputes, tax and valuation matters and e-commerce.
We are known for our advice on complex and innovative matters and pioneering processes which require highly specialised IP and in-depth knowledge of the regulatory framework conditions. Apart from this, by integrating technical and legal expertise we ensure success in patent infringement proceedings of high technological and legal complexity. All our patent lawyers are experienced engineers and scientists with outstanding academic or industrial backgrounds, notably in the fields of electrical and mechanical engineering, chemistry, medical technology, pharmaceuticals and biotechnology.
Clients turn to us because they can rely on our team to actively go about finding a commercially efficient approach which gives top priority to their reputation and keeps all other relevant factors that are essential for successfully representing their interests in focus. With our international approach, our advice extends far beyond individual jurisdictions and allows our clients to smoothly implement global IP strategies and new digital business models.
In international projects you can rely on the seamless interaction between the experts in our German and international offices. We are for instance the only recognised leading international German-based law firm that has its own office in Alicante enjoying direct access to the European Union Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO).
In countries where we do not have our own office, we cooperate with suitable local lawyers who are specialists in their subjects. We maintain long-standing relationships with lawyers across the world who share our beliefs regarding professional quality and client service. Moreover, we are an exclusive member of Lex Mundi, the world’s leading network of independent law firms with comprehensive experience in more than 100 countries.
When selecting suitable lawyers, we bear in mind economic considerations and play a leading role in international projects. Our clients profit from a clearly defined contact person, consistently high quality, and efficient, smoothly running operations across international borders.
