              A successful market entry and establishment becomes more challenging as competition grows. Thus, it is crucial to achieve an optimum starting position and to clearly define and set the limits for distinguishing you and your products/services from competitors.

              We do not only understand your specific requirements and needs but also concentrate on reaching a proactive and integral solution for each IP issue.

              In particular, our services encompass:

              • IP Prosecution and Portfolio Management, including designing brand strategies, monitoring and securing brand/design protection before national PTOs, EUIPO and WIPO;
              • IP Enforcement and Litigation, including extra-judicial and judicial support in defending against third party allegations, ensuring enforcement of IP rights before all German courts and courts of the EU (e.g. warning letters and cease-and-desist demands; preliminary injunction proceedings; main court actions);  
              • Contractual and transactional aspects, including creating contracts and agreements (e.g. NDAs, licenses, Prior Right and Coexistence Agreements) and due diligence investigations; 
              • Design and verification of advertising strategies and activities, claims as well as product packagings and presentations (e.g. look-alikes; misleading advertising; etc.).
