The firm advises and represents clients in many areas of civil and commercial law, for example with regards to agency agreements or the preparation of terms and conditions.

The areas of law described in greater detail below often overlap, and it is therefore necessary to obtain advice on the complex legal issues involved, for instance when choosing between protection alternatives in line with the different legal bases. How do we differentiate between trademark and design protection? Is the threshold of originality for copyright protection met, or does the registration of a design make sense? Does an invention really meet the requirements for patent protection ?

 

Going forward, careful examination of the administrative and judicial procedure opportunities in those legal areas is indespensable. This could include the question of whether to opt for summary proceedings or principal proceedings, or whether – after having received a warning notice – a (modified) cease and desist letter is delivered in order to avoid a costly trial. Here, clients benefit from the many years of experience the firm has gained in various courts and jurisdictions.
