Intellectual property law in Germany

Enforcement and defense of your intellectual property rights by specialized IP lawyers

Intellectual property law covers various areas of law that deal with IP protection including trademark law, patent law and copyright law. In contrast to copyright, which arises almost automatically with the creation of the work, trademarks and patents in Germany must be registered with the German Patent and Trademark Office so that the owner receives exclusive intellectual property rights.

These exclusive intellectual property rights enable the respective owners to take action against individuals or companies who using their intellectual property without authorization or violate their intellectual property rights. To ensure innovation, competitive advantages, and long-term success, it is therefore crucial for companies to legally protect and enforce their property rights permanently. In view of the immense legal complexity and the continuous evolution of intellectual property law, this task requires appropriate expertise and experience.
