Differentiating Rights

In contrast to the legal system of the United States of America, the German and European legal systems are characterized by a two-tier system in both the technical and esthetic fields (namely, patents / utility models and copyright / registered designs). In each case the so-called “small coin” (i.e. utility model or registered design) is laid out for quick availability and very low requirements in favor of anyone seeking legal protection. The already differentiated intellectual property rights in German law are additionally extended, particularly by the judicial case law of unfair competition as mentioned in §§ 3 and 4 ff. UWG, which also provides points of reference for the third important field, namely the law of signs and marks.

Idividual Support

One of our core activities and interests is the individual support of for example an innovation from its development phase to the filing of an intellectual property right up to its enforcement or, as the case may be, its exploitation. From our Headquarters in the middle of the NordAllianz - Metro Region Munich North, an alliance of interests of eight communities of the districts Munich and Freising, namely: Eching, Garching, Hallberg­moos, Ismaning, Neu­fahrn, Ober­schleissheim, Unter­foehring and Unterschleissheim, as well as our new Erkrath and Boeblingen Offices within of the Duesseldorf and Stuttgart Metro Regions we are active throughout Germany.
