Trade mark law

Brands serve to distinguish goods and services of different companies what not only defines them as the central marketing instrument, but also a most valuable intangible asset. For the protection and care of brands, it often makes sense to have  a brand registered. This needs careful preparation because it must be checked if the brand is suitable for registration for the required goods and services and to minimize the risk of the violation of an already existing brand. With pleasure, we offer our support to conduct these steps as well as for the preparation of a brand registration in Germany, the EU and other countries to you. Once the brand is registered, it should also be maintained. This includes the running surveillance of new registrations of brands to discover similar signs. Provided that we have found a conflicting sign, we adjust the right strategy with you and represent your rights in contradiction procedures at the Patent Offices and disputes at the civil courts. Furthermore, we counsel and represent you concerning other sign rights (name rights, work titles and company names).
