Other Protective Rights
We also advise our clients regarding other available ways to protect their intellectual property
in Germany and elsewhere. For example, we assist them in drafting and filing of applications for utility
models and national, international and Community design patents.
We have particular experience in the field of supplementary protection certificates for pharmaceuticals
(SPC). Starting with drafting the application for such a supplementary protection certificate to provide
the broadest possible scope of protection, filing the application, and prosecuting the application at
the German Patent and Trademark Office and in appeal proceedings before the German Federal Patent Court or
the German Supreme Court (BGH).
