We assist our clients through all stages of patent prosecution. All partners are
fully qualified to act at both the German and European Patent Office in prosecuting German national applications,
European applications and applications under PCT. We handle national applications outside Germany by working
together with experienced colleagues throughout the world.
Our services include the drafting of new patent applications, as well as reviewing patent applications prepared
by our clients and adapting them to comply with the practice at the German or European Patent Office.
We represent our clients during the prosecution of the applications at the respective Patent Offices and, if
necessary, during appeal proceedings in the German Federal Patent Court and before the Boards of Appeal of
the European Patent Office.
One of our particular fields of activities lies in opposition proceedings. We have vast experience in
opposing patents as well as in defending patents against oppositions.
