Once IP rights are secured it is essential to protect them against dilution and any challenges by third parties and to make the best legal and economic use of such IP rights.

We help our clients in achieving these goals by enforcing and defending their rights before the German Patent and Trademark Office (DPMA), the European Union Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO) and the German and European courts. In other jurisdictions we closely work together with renowned law firms worldwide to best protect and defend our clients’ IP rights.


We provide our clients with legal advice and support in all aspects of unfair competition matters. This includes in particular advice in advertising rules and laws and the clearing of our clients’ advertising projects before they are launched. Among others, we dispose of a strong background in advising our clients in all aspects of advertising pharmaceuticals and medical products.
