Patent and Utility Model Law

Technical innovation is an essential factor for the success of a product. Patents and utility models are intended to secure this success. The question whether a product infringes a patent and whether the patent is valid is often not easy to answer. This is why tough disputes are fought between companies, at the end of which there is the threat of a sales ban and compensation for damages. Such patent disputes are one of our areas of expertise. We represent you before the courts in patent infringement proceedings and in nullity and opposition proceedings.

In addition, we support you on the way to a patent and in the drafting and conclusion of patent license agreements, research and development agreements and know-how license agreements, also from an antitrust perspective.
