We have been protecting devices, products or processes as technical inventions for up to 20 years. We advise you on all legal and technical questions regarding patentability and accompany examination procedures before the European Patent Office, the German Patent and Trademark Office and numerous national patent offices. Our extensive international experience will always be of benefit to you particularly in the strategic planning of your patent portfolio.
Software can be patented if it solves a technical problem. Our patent attorneys, who are experienced in this technical area associated with special legal issues, extract the patentable aspects of your invention together with you. Our expertise extends to diverse areas of software technology and information and communication technology, including medical planning and navigation software, digital image processing, telecommunications, driver assistance, artificial intelligence and control programs.
Materials and Surface Science
Our experts in the field of materials and surface sciences have acquired the appropriate know-how through training, studies and many years of industry knowledge in order to exchange ideas with you individually and specifically and to provide you with comprehensive advice. We have special knowledge in the fields of chemical and physical surface treatment.
Our experts have many years of industry experience in their respective specialist areas, in particular telecommunications, communications technology, electrical machines, measurement technology, microelectronics and high-frequency technology, control technology and information technology.
In the chemistry sector effective patent protection is essential. This is the only way to protect the technical lead and fend off imitators in order to regain the high costs of development and the construction of corresponding production facilities. We have special knowledge in the field of organometallic chemistry, chemical analysis, organic-synthetic chemistry and solid-phase synthesis.
In addition to the technical qualification, the practical experience of our patent attorneys in the enforcement or defence of patents in the field of telecommunications is essential. Our patent attorneys, who specialize in this area, have practical experience in leading global companies. In the field of telecommunications, it is particularly important to align a company’s patent strategy with technical standards and to clarify questions about indirect patent infringements.
