International IP Rights

We represent our clients before the German and European Patent Offices, Trademark Offices and Courts and in dealing with the World Intellectual Property Organization. We also handle patent and trademark matters in more than 20 countries outside Europe, including the USA, Japan and China. In our international cases we rely both on collaboration with expert local colleagues and on our own experience. Each of us has worked in the field of legal protection of intellectual property in at least one important jurisdiction outside Europe.
