Trademarks and Designs

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.

Trademark and design searches

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.

Trademark and design applications

We register your trademark or design with the German Patent and Trademark Office, the Office for Harmonization in Europe, or WIPO in Geneva.

Opposition, nullity, and cancellation proceedings

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.

Judicial infringement proceedings

We support you in judicial infringement proceedings if your rights are infringed or if you are accused of infringement.

border seizure proceedings

We support you in border seizure proceedings under customs law when importing counterfeit goods.

Drafting of contracts

We support you in drafting contracts with your intellectual property rights. Among other things, we prepare and review license agreements or delimitation agreements.
