Rights and Licences

Securing and defending industrial property rights and know-how is an important element in our comprehensive commercial support. We advise on trademarks, descriptions, titles, designs as well as patents and other technical rights.

To secure an optimal infrastructure, we avail for registration and monitoring formalities of patent lawyers with whom we cooperate for many years. Our own team concentrates on conducting infringement proceedings through all instances. This focus on tactical and procedural details is often the decisive factor in difficult disputes.

The development of balanced licensing agreements must often take account of antitrust law aspects as well as contract and copyright know-how. Availing of our industry expertise, we draft individually designed research and development agreements, use agreements, know-how licences, sales licences and exploitation licences – all this with the prevention of future conflicts in view.
