“As engineers and patent attorneys, we are your curious and technically experienced partners. We maintain a personalized focus on you as our client. Your interest is our interest.“


Terms like intellectual property or intangible assets are frequently used within a business context, but cannot always be clearly defined. Also the thought connected with it, the creation of values and property with nothing else but intellect and creativity, seems to be rather utopia than real, so that still many enterprises pursue the protection of intellectual property rather half-heartedly instead of recognizing and appreciating it as business-asset.
In today’s more and more global competitive environment, the protection of intellectual property is becoming increasingly important. Although a brilliant idea or the sum of such ideas can form the cornerstone of a company, the obtaining, protection and enforcement of intellectual property is more important than ever for sustainable entrepreneurial success. In particular, intellectual property should receive the same attention as other success factors of the company.

Intellectual property rights
Patent law consulting

We help you to identify, strengthen, maintain and protect your perhaps most important and at the same time most volatile assets. Because any further development, no matter how disruptive, can only provide an added value and a competitive advantage to the extent that it cannot be copied by your competitors. Thanks to our many years of experience in prosecuting and litigating intellectual property rights, we are able to identify strengths and weaknesses in your intellectual property portfolio – which may contain significantly more potential than you might think – and derive the greatest possible benefit from it for you.
In addition, we are first and foremost your technically and legally competent partners, but always consider the most commercially and strategically sensible solutions to maximize client benefit. We are interested in your technologies, expand our understanding of your business and your environmental conditions and we appreciate every open word from you.

The intellectual property rights we advise on and which we obtain, manage and protect for you last for decades. Our determination to gain and maintain your confidence is equally a long-term interest. We are ready to meet this challenge every day based on our understanding as a service provider.
