We can provide IP related consultancy for everyone from individual inventors to large business concerns. This is a worldwide service in almost all technical fields of "commercial protective rights" (also known as IP - Intellectual Property). We specialise in the drafting of patent applications in the areas of electrical engineering, electronics, chemical engineering, mechanics and mechatronics, medical technology, packaging, technically applied software (software patents), computer system technology, chip and semi-conductor technology.
We provide consultancy within "the four corners" of patent law. This also extends to utility models, trade marks and designs.
We draw up professional patent applications, trade mark applications and design applications.
We provide strategic advice in licensing matters and in the drawing-up of license agreements. Expert opinions evaluate risks and assess the options available with a view to commercial protective rights (IP systems). Searches show "whether this already exists". We advise in the area of the law on employees' inventions in order to arrive at a balance of interests - a type of mediation legally established in 1957 and 1959 with an arbitration board as mediator (Schiedsstelle).
We are authorised in Germany to represent in proceedings before the German Patent and Trade Mark Office (DPMA) and the Federal Patent Court (BPatG) as well as in appeal proceedings before the Federal Court of Justice (BGH). We act as representatives before the European Patent Office (EPO) and the Office for Harmonization in the Internal Market (OHIM) in Alicante. We are also heard before the WIPO in Geneva.

After decades of discussions in the European Community and then in the European Union regarding the creation of a "Community patent" a new form has seen the light of day: the Unitary Patent (EP patent having unitary effect). It is subject to two regulations and the Agreement on a Unified Patent Court, which is to be ratified nationally by at least 13 member states.
(1) Patents granted under this Convention shall be called European patents.
(2) The European patent shall, in each of the Contracting States for which it is granted, have the effect of and be subject to the same conditions as a national patent granted by that State, unless this Convention provides otherwise.

The Bundesministerium für Umwelt, Naturschutz und Reaktorsicherheit, BMU, has issued a target to increase the proportion of renewable energies to at least 35 % by 2020 and to at least 80 % by 2050.
For the time being, renewable energy is to a large extent obtained by tidal energy, wind energy and photovoltaic energy.
