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)
