Law firm

We are an innovative, internationally active and globally well-connected law firm, which has specialised significantly in the protection of intellectual property as well as personal rights since its foundation in 1997. Our fields of work include intellectual property law, copyright and competition law, general contract law as well as employment and tenancy law.
Profile
Intellectual Property
We have highly specialised expertise and many years of experience in all matters of intellectual property law. In addition to intellectual property law, we also primarily focus on copyright and competition law.
Employment law
Since both employers and employees are among our clients, we have experience on both sides and can develop optimal solutions for our clients. Our size allows us to react quickly and flexibly to the needs of our clients.
Partnerships
Through worldwide cooperation with specialists and authorities as well as associations and organisations active in the field of intellectual property law, we guarantee efficient and, above all, competent handling of the mandates assigned to us, even on an international level.

Philosophy

Our priority is always to achieve expedient and economical results for our clients, in all German courts. However, this is precisely what is frequently not achieved through protracted litigation, which is why we have placed an emphasis on advisory and extrajudicial activities.

In proceedings involving foreign countries, we support our colleagues and form the link between clients and colleagues on site.

We see ourselves as your sparring partner and service provider and place great importance on a good personal and qualified cooperation between client and solicitor.
We are present on site for our clients at trade fairs so that if required, we are able to intervene immediately in the event of an infringement of intellectual property rights. Our clients, mainly designers, design-oriented companies as well as companies from the consumer goods industry and the film and advertising industry, value our service. This is demonstrated by the many long-standing client relationships.

Highly motivated and qualified personnel as well as the latest technical equipment are a matter of course for us.
