We assist our clients in the development of innovations and their protection. This includes the development of strategies for securing, maintaining and enforcing intellectual property rights, as well as managing IP rights.

Our ideas and experience range from support in commercializing innovations and developing safeguarding concepts to drafting the corresponding contracts at every stage of the value chain (e.g., licensing, cooperations, purchase or financing agreements, as well as IP in M&A transactions). Should conflicts arise, it is our goal to solve them efficiently – which often means extrajudicially. We also effectively pursue IP infringements through resort to the courts or via border seizures.

We have expertise in various areas of intellectual and industrial property (e.g. copyright, design patent, trademark, and plant variety law) and advise in a wide range of industries, including IT, communication technology and professional services, groceries and consumer goods, mineral oil, plant breeding and other genetic resources.
