Protecting technical innovations gives you competitive advantage and increases shareholder value. The national and international fight against counterfeiting and theft of know-how provides both short-term and long-term benefits. Companies may also be exposed to unjustified allegations. Technical standards and powerful patent pools may restrict entrepreneurial freedom. In some cases, antitrust claims help to eliminate or circumvent these obstacles.
Technical innovations are often only possible in collaboration with another company. The relevant contracts must promote cooperation, safeguard the rights and be workable.
In these and other cases, we represent our clients' interests in Germany and abroad, through consultation, negotiation and litigation. Where required, we involve technical experts, consultants, patent attorneys and foreign lawyers. We take on complex technical issues, illustrate and explain them.
