With their innovative and disruptive ideas, our clients have a significant impact on our everyday lives, and we use our legal and technological expertise to ensure that their intellectual property (IP) and know-how are protected in the best possible way. We support start-ups, medium-sized companies, and entrepreneurs from the conception to the extrajudicial and judicial enforcement of their IP rights and jointly develop strategies for the national and international protection of trademarks and designs, among other things, and manage their trademark and design portfolios worldwide. We further coordinate international registration, opposition and enforcement proceedings with our worldwide network of correspondents. To ensure effective trademark and design protection, we prosecute counterfeit products and related trademark and design infringements on our client’s behalf and also advise on all matters regarding the Unfair Competition Act (UWG). Within the exploitation of IP rights, we support our clients by drafting, negotiating, and implementing license agreements. In addition, we use our IP expertise to support our clients during M&A transactions and venture financing.
