Patents, trademarks and registered designs are means of competition which can provide a substantial contribution to the commercial success of a company. Therefore it is important to successfully enforce a company's rights against infringers or to defend our client against an attack by a competitor based on his IP rights.

In case of an assumed or detected infringement of IP rights or attacks based on third party rights we first consider carefully the legal and factual situation. This includes analysis of the respective IP right regarding scope of protection and validity. If necessary we take care of the required steps for enforcing the rights of our client (including claims for an injunction and damages), as well as defending against corresponding claims of other parties.

In infringement court actions before the responsible German courts up to the Federal High Court (BGH) we assist the admitted lawyers as technically and legally qualified advisors. We have a long-standing relationship with experienced lawyers specialized in patent, trademark and design matters.
