It is essentially important that you

properly file an application for patents
have patents granted within a short time
enforce patents rigorously
defend patents in a strategically clever way
contest patents with foresight,

both nationally and internationally in Germany - in Europe- worldwide.

All of this always in conformity with a long-term strategic organization of your business.

Establish a close interlinking between R&D and Sales. Your employees in Sales should know which industrial protection rights exist for which products.

Important for a successful development of a patent portfolio is good in-company communication and good on-going communication with your patent attorney.

We absolutely advise, in contrast, against a too early communication with customers or suppliers (before filing the application).
