Your Design in safe Hands

Technical inventions and trademarks, two-dimensional and three-dimensional ornamental designs and typefaces can be protected. We determine if your product is eligible for a design patent and conduct a competition law assessment of your design. We support you throughout the application process for German, European and international design patents and help to safeguard and enforce your rights.
