|Our law firm offers advice for all legal issues related to intellectual property such as patents, trademarks, industrial design, copyright and all other matters of unfair competition.
We are therefore proud of our long-term and comprehensive expertise in litigation pertaining to patents and trademarks as well as product piracy. We represent our clients in all proceedings before commercial, criminal and arbitral courts and of course before the patent office as the responsible administrative authority in IT matters in Austria too.
Regularly we deal with questions of trademark law and assist our clients in obtaining trademark registrations. In doing so we are able to give advice on the choice of suitable marks and logos, on their registrability, availability and strategic impact and furthermore on the management and supervision of entire domestic and international trademark portfolios. We do have access to a worldwide network of highly competent colleagues who are experts in the laws of their own countries. For those clients who already have foreign legal representatives, we are happy to cooperate with the legal counsel designated by a client. Our activities include the monitoring of trademark rights and the filing of trademark registration renewals at the appropriate time in order to avoid abandonment of a registration as well as all other legal steps that are required to maintain existing registrations in force. As a special service at reasonable costs our clients can overview their entire trademark portfolio and its administration online.
Furthermore we are experienced in dealing with litigation related to protected geographical designations and indications of origin.
