For many companies, technological innovation forms the basis of their commercial success. Patent infringement proceedings can have repercussions that affect the very foundations of the company, regardless of whether it is the plaintiff or the defendant. We have successfully advised clients for decades on all key issues regarding the infringement, legal validity, and exploitation of patents and utility models, as well as on the protection of inventions and know-how. We focus on complex national, pan-European and international patent disputes. The regular engagement of our practitioners in landmark supreme court cases in Germany also contributes to the development of patent case law.
