The JUVE Handbook German Commercial Law Firms ranks us amongst the recommended law firms for trademark and unfair competition law.

Edition 2016: “innovative” and “very precise”

Edition 2017: “very good advice, both legal and practical”

 


Intellectual Property/IP such as trade marks, patents, designs and trade names are of utmost importance for the overall company value. We primarily represent companies and entrepreneurs in intellectual property and unfair competition law matters. We fight for our clients against infringements of their IP rights and defend them against third-party challenges. It is not without reason that our competitors call us “innovative” and “precise” (JUVE Handbook 2015/2016 Trademarks and Unfair Competition). This is because we particularly strive for finding creative, effective and clear legal solutions which are always comprehensible to our clients, namely results which are not only legally correct but also practical and economically efficient for our clients.

 

The current developments such as in the fields of digitalization, 3D printers, social media and in the protection of undisclosed know-how and business information (trade secrets) open up new opportunities for companies and pose major challenges to them and their intangible property rights. Our lawyers are engaged in the further development of intellectual property law by making contributions to journals, giving presentations and participating in expert committees such as the intellectual property associations AIPPI (International Association for the Protection of Intellectual Property), INTA (International Trademark Association) and MARQUES (Association of European Trademark Owners).

 

Clients from Germany and abroad trust in the effectiveness and assertiveness of our law firm in legal proceedings. In cross-border cases of infringements of international intellectual property rights we cooperate with recognized experts from many countries and coordinate the offensive or defensive strategies across borders.
