Trademark law, license and know-how agreements

You are in the best hands with our expert legal advice

For many companies, the trademark and the know-how are an essential part of the company's value. The trademark stands in public for the product and the company. A registered trademark gives the holder an exclusive right of use. Since also in the area of trademark law the motto is "first come, first serve", an interested company should secure and protect the rights of a desired trademark as early as possible; just to make sure that the desired new trademark doesn't collide with possible older priority trademark rights of a competitor. Because in the event of a violation the other qualified company can demand from the other injunction, information and if necessary, damages. The former is in practice often invoked by warning.

We are pleased to offer our experience in an advisory capacity for all questions relating to the creation, establishment, protection and the sale of trademarks and know-how, the granting of licenses and the enforcement of your legitimate interests. Upon request we provide the necessary letters and contracts. We work with external specialized patent attorneys in regards to registration of a trademark with the German Patent and Trademark Office (DPMA), performance of searches and other trademark registration matters.
