We are committed to protecting our partners’ intellectual property from the very first development stages and provide advice particularly regarding communication, distribution and marketing. We specialize in trademarks, copyrights and designs as well as competition and distribution law.

We consider intellectual property to be the most valuable asset of any company and we are committed to its protection; we take consistent action against counterfeit products so that the original may be marketed in a way that is permanently profitable.

Our clear focus on industrial property rights allows us to provide in-depth assistance to our partners in the long term.

Our services

Together with our clients we develop national and international trademark strategies, register trademarks and designs and protect our clients’ trademarks, company symbols and industrial designs in Germany, Europe and worldwide. Just as important to us is the protection of the intellectual property of stock photo agencies, advertising firms, broadcasting companies, film manufacturers and recording companies as well as photographers, designers and other creative artists.

Furthermore, we assist our clients in marketing their intellectual property. We draft license agreements and support our partners in compliance with the rules of fair competition as well as their enforcement, especially in the areas of distribution and advertising, in order to ensure their economic success is not endangered by their competitors breaking these rules. In order to maintain our clients' knowledge and competitive advantage, we also support them in protecting know-how, customer data and other business secrets.
