Intellectual property law in Germany

Your products make your company unique. In a global and fast-paced economic environment with steadily increasing digitalisation, industrial property rights in Germany are subjected to new challenges every day. Our aim is therefore to protect your products by finding workable solutions which address your complex legal and also industry-specific questions in the area of intellectual property law. Our solutions are based on our specific industry knowledge as well as our prior experience in certain industries.

Legal advice on intellectual property law

In addition to finding solutions in complex intellectual property case scenarios, we also support you in protecting and enforcing your intellectual property rights in and out of court. We will advise you in all areas of competition, trademark and design law as well as copyright law in Germany and also abroad.

Furthermore, we will support you in negotiating and concluding cooperation, licence or know-how projects and agreements. This enables you as a research-based company, competitor, trademark owner, contract manufacturer, designer or author to protect your innovations, inventions and creations while at the same time making them available to others for the purpose of commercialisation. We also protect your rights as a licensee of industrial property rights to ensure that you can successfully use and exploit such third-party property rights in a way which is tailored to your needs. We will also gladly accompany your research and development department with regard to the respective projects or contract drafting.

Extensive experience in intellectual property law

Whether as an innovative medium-sized company or a global player, many of our clients operate internationally. We therefore provide advice including negotiations and drafting and wording of contracts in foreign languages just as proficiently as in the German language. Where specific cross-border cases are concerned, we might involve colleagues from our global Eversheds Sutherland network who are industrial/intellectual property professionals in their respective legal systems. This enables us to provide you with a complete cross-border picture regarding your specific case, on the basis of which we will comprehensively advise you regarding all industrial property rights issues.
