Prosecution & Oppositions
We will fully oversee your patent granting procedures or utility model registrations in line with your instructions. Our extensive experience with wide-ranging patent portfolios also means we can largely act independently. We are thereby specialized in the German and European granting procedures (before the German Patent and Trademark Office, DMPA, and the European Patent Office, EPO) as well as the international examination procedures under the PCT. We likewise provide the necessary adapting of your PCT patent applications in preparation of initiating national/regional phases. In the case of foreign granting procedures, we work in close collaboration with the respective local law firms.
When it comes to oppositions, we will represent you in cases both as the opponent as well as the patentholder. Here is where our solid experience in legal disputes is of great benefit. We also handle oppositions involving multiple opponents while ensuring the optimal asserting of your own individual position.
