Welcome to the world of intellectual property rights – Start your IP
Start iP is our consulting and service program designed for new clients dealing with matters of intellectual property rights for the first time.
This service is also, but by no means exclusively, directed to founders and start-ups. Additionally, even well-established companies which have not dealt with intellectual property rights yet will find the right start to their IP here.
Under this program, we pay particular attention to the broadest possible and most detailed initial consultation in order to identify opportunities and assess possible risks. In this early phase, it will be analysed which protection of your own IP is possible, necessary and useful. Possible prevention methods aiming at avoiding the infringement of third-party rights and possible strategies for defending your intellectual property are discussed as well.
On this basis, an early establishment of an ambitious, comprehensive and at the same time flexible IP strategy characterizes our consulting service. Furthermore, we closely cooperate with organizations supporting start-ups and we advise our clients on the possibilities of IP funding program.
With the IP strategy acting as a guidepost, targeted advice is then provided, including the obtaining, maintenance and protection of intellectual property rights. Depending on requirements, consultation or service packages helping to control the costs can also be defined. With our many years of experience in advising IP starters, we can provide our clients with access to a network of partnering institutions offering advice on matters such as the management and promotion of innovations as well as potential funding opportunities.
From the beginning, it is our mission not only to provide legal advice, but also to sensitize our clients regarding important IP matters, to transmit knowledge to decision-makers and to broaden our understanding of the business and needs of our clients. Because on our common way beginning with the Start IP program, the highest level of success can be achieved if all partners grow together.
“We advise start-ups on all matters of intellectual property rights. In particular, a strategic approach including the establishment of an IP strategy tailored to your needs characterises our long-term consulting.”
