Patents & Utility Models

Patents and utility models are crucially important instruments for protecting technical inventions. The publication of an invention and the protection afforded by it make a valuable contribution to technological progress. The owner of an IP right may for a limited period of time prevent others from using the invention or may grant a license for such use. Our interdisciplinary teams of patent attorneys and attorneys-at-law support clients every step of the way, from developing suitable strategies, to filing and prosecuting applications, to enforcing granted IP rights. Maiwald's attorneys-at-law have long years of experience in coordinating international infringement actions. They work closely with their patent attorney colleagues on technical aspects to ensure the best outcome for the client. Maiwald’s patent attorneys, on the other hand, have accumulated particular expertise in opposition and appeal proceedings before the European Patent Office.
