In our Trademarks and Designs practice area, we provide strategic and conceptual advice from development through application and defense to enforcement of your trademarks and designs.
We search for registered trademarks and designs to create a basis for decision-making in the run-up to an application. On a research basis, you can decide whether you want to apply for the protective right.
We register your trademark or design with the German Patent and Trademark Office, the Office for Harmonization in Europe, or WIPO in Geneva.
We support you in opposition, nullity, and cancellation proceedings before the DPMA, the OHIM, and the WIPO.
We support you in monitoring. This is because registered trademarks must not only be used in a way that preserves rights but the rights arising from the brand must also be exercised so they are not lost (forfeited). We support you in this.
We support you in judicial infringement proceedings if your rights are infringed or if you are accused of infringement.
We support you in border seizure proceedings under customs law when importing counterfeit goods.
We support you in drafting contracts with your intellectual property rights. Among other things, we prepare and review license agreements or delimitation agreements.
