Protecting unique designs against international competition

Is your trademark on shaky ground? We will defend you in nullity and infringement proceedings. And if third parties make unauthorized use of your marks and words, we will file claims for injunctive relief and damages with the courts.

Regardless of whether you have developed an industrial design to make a technical device look good, or wish to sell a product whose value depends considerably on its design, we competently guide you through the complete registration process for your design with the German Patent and Trademark Office (DPMA). The result: a limited-time monopoly - five years, renewable five times - on the shape and colour design of your product, whether it be a packaging, a complete product, a graphic design or a Web design. Our patent attorneys and lawyers will assist you here in documenting your design with suitable images, and ensure that your creation receives the protection necessary for a successful defence.

If the appearance is to be protected not just in Germany, but throughout the EU, we will assist you in having your design registered as a community design with the European Union Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO).
