Legal Protection of Industrial Property & Copyright Law
Germany as a business location enjoys an excellent reputation worldwide and is known for outstanding quality and innovation. Since industrial property rights usually embody a high economic value, it is essential to protect these rights and to defend them consistently against imitations.
In patent infringement proceedings we work together with leading patent attorneys. We advise and represent you:
- in filing of applications and defending national and international industrial property rights, in particular trademarks and designs, before the competent offices (in case of international trademarks also with the assistance of selected foreign law firms specialising in industrial property protection).
- in court proceedings (patent, trademark and design infringements as well as copyright infringements and unfair competition proceedings) before German courts.
- in negotiations and drafting of license agreements and distribution contracts.
- in questions of compatibility of advertising and marketing with competition law.
