Success in international competition re­quires the effective protection of intan-
­gi­ble assets. Intellectual property in­fringe­ment extends across domestic boundaries and concerns all companies and fields of business. Our attorneys have exten­sive experience in all relevant areas of intel­lec­tual and industrial property law, namely patent law, trademark law, copy­­right law and laws against unfair compe­tition as well as press and media law. Thanks to our cooperation with respec­ted domes­tic and international law firms, we are able to protect and enforce in­tang­ible assets a­cross borders and to advise on all matters concerning intel­lec­tual property in connection with busi­ness trans­actions, joint ventures, cooperation agreements, etc.

Investing in the future

The need to use the latest in information technologies results in considerable invest­ments and dependencies for any business. Therefore, the chances modern infor­ma­tion technology affords are mirrored by considerable risks which must be reco­gnized and prevented. This in mind, we advise and represent business and governmental clients in complex IT and outsourcing projects – from the tender phase to contract drafting and negotiation, conclusion of the agreements and beyond.

Safe guarding business success

Ambiguous and insufficient contractual provisions in connection with outsourc­ing or research and development projects as well as licence agreements and disputes resulting from these can lead to grave consequences for any business. Therefore, a legally sound agreement, appropriately taking into account the in­terests of
all parties involved, is the es­sential framework for a successful and last­ing cooperation. Together with our clients, we ensure that the contractual agreements reflect the economic conditions and the expectations of the parties in a correct legal manner and avoid future conflicts.
