We can provide IP related consultancy for everyone from individual inventors to large business concerns. This is a worldwide service in almost all technical fields of "commercial protective rights" (also known as IP - Intellectual Property). We specialise in the drafting of patent applications in the areas of electrical engineering, electronics, chemical engineering, mechanics and mechatronics, medical technology, packaging, technically applied software (software patents), computer system technology, chip and semi-conductor technology.
We provide consultancy within "the four corners" of patent law. This also extends to utility models, trade marks and designs.
We draw up professional patent applications, trade mark applications and design applications.
We provide strategic advice in licensing matters and in the drawing-up of license agreements. Expert opinions evaluate risks and assess the options available with a view to commercial protective rights (IP systems). Searches show "whether this already exists". We advise in the area of the law on employees' inventions in order to arrive at a balance of interests - a type of mediation legally established in 1957 and 1959 with an arbitration board as mediator (Schiedsstelle).
We are authorised in Germany to represent in proceedings before the German Patent and Trade Mark Office (DPMA) and the Federal Patent Court (BPatG) as well as in appeal proceedings before the Federal Court of Justice (BGH). We act as representatives before the European Patent Office (EPO) and the Office for Harmonization in the Internal Market (OHIM) in Alicante. We are also heard before the WIPO in Geneva.
To make an appointment for a personal consultation, please contact our office in Munich. Using e-mail to get in touch is the best way to protect the environment. We have Italian Latte Macchiato. If you come by bike you'll find a license-free cycle stand in front of our building.
