European patents, German patents and German utility models are intellectual property rights for protecting technical inventions.

One of the most important and demanding tasks of a patent attorney's work is the selection of patent-relevant facts from the information provided by our clients, and the drafting of the patent text in such a manner that full protection is provided while simultaneously the required distinction from the prior art is achieved.

National applications for patents and utility models are filed in the German Patent and Trademark Office. A European patent application is the suitable means for achieving in a unified granting procedure protection for up to 30 countries. International patent applications based on the Patent Cooperation Treaty (PCT) provide an option for patent protection in almost all countries of the world.

We carefully advise our clients to find an optimal patent application strategy taking into account the economic situation. Our office organization, including state of the art computer equipment, makes sure that all relevant deadlines are monitored with due care.
