Innovation is Our Tradition

For medium-sized companies, major corporations, and start-ups
we have been protecting and defending intellectual property since 1920.
In close cooperation with law firms in almost all other countries
we coordinate patents, trademarks, and designs worldwide.

Our patent attorneys have scientific backgrounds which enables us to offer our clients highly qualified consultations in all areas of technology and engineering. We have experience with thousands of IP rights, thus ensuring professional and efficient support – from prosecution to litigation.

Our attorneys work hand in hand with the patent attorneys and are highly specialized expert lawyers in the area of industrial property rights.

Our clients’ goals are always our first priority. Industrial property rights can entail pressure, representing a whole range of challenges for companies, e.g. building up a valuable IP portfolio, dealing with IP rights in a way that is economically sound, or the strategic orientation within the industrial sector. We see it as our most important task to understand the goals of our clients, identify problems, and develop individual solutions.

For us, a successful personal consultation with a client is informed by commitment and team spirit. We see ourselves as part of our client’s team where we work together to analyze desired outcomes and arrive at ways to accomplish them. We have successfully advised our clients over decades by using this open and honest approach.

According to Advocate General Wahl, a supplier of luxury goods may prohibit its authorised retailers from selling its products on third-party platforms such as Amazon or eBay. Such a prohibition, which seeks to preserve the luxury image of the products concerned, is not, under certain conditions, caught by the prohibition of agreements, as it is likely to improve competition based on qualitative criteria. more...
