Our firm has extensive experience in competition law, which enables us to ensure that your business operates in a fair competitive environment and is protected from unfair business practices. We will actively assist you in protecting your brand name and reputation from reputational damage and unauthorized copying. We help you identify conflicts early and resolve them constructively, whether through out-of-court settlements or, if necessary, litigation.

In competition matters, we provide not only ongoing monitoring, but also prosecution or defense in the event of infringement of intellectual property rights by third parties. Our team can assist you with all aspects of competition law compliance, including misleading advertising, unfair competition, and antitrust violations.

We also provide proactive advice on the creation and protection of intellectual property rights. Our experts can help you develop strategic plans to protect and promote your business interests.

Brand protection

Trademark protection is an important component of a business strategy and another important pillar of our consulting activities. By protecting your trademark, you can gain a competitive advantage and ensure the success of your business. In the area of trademark protection, our firm constantly monitors the current situation and, if necessary, can defend against trademark infringements by third parties. We are prepared to act quickly, effectively and purposefully to protect your interests and preserve the integrity of your trademark.

In trademark law, preventive advice is of paramount importance. We rely on thorough preparation, including identification and similarity searches, to identify potential conflicts at an early stage. Our expertise helps you develop clear strategies to distinguish and strengthen your brand. We guide you from consultation to registration and management of your trademark to ensure that your intellectual property is protected in the best possible way.

Trademark protection is an essential component of business success. By registering a trademark, you can protect your investment in your brands and strengthen your reputation and goodwill. If, however, there is a possibility that your new mark may infringe upon another's mark, we will be happy to advise you on strategies to resolve the issue, such as the possibility of settlement agreements. If necessary, we can also negotiate with trademark owners on your behalf to protect your interests. By working closely with you, we can develop customized solutions that best meet your individual needs. Our goal is to secure your rights and protect your brand from harm. We are committed to ensuring that you can freely use your trademark and reap the benefits of a strong brand.

We also understand the global dimension of the trademark business. Therefore, we take care of securing trademark protection for you by filing applications with the German Patent and Trademark Office (DPMA), the European Union Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO) or the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO).

In the event of a trademark dispute, we will actively assist you. Thanks to our many years of experience in representing clients, we can provide you with comprehensive advice and representation at all stages of the legal process. In the worst case scenario, our team will also defend you against trademark infringement or challenges and, if necessary, act on your behalf through cease-and-desist letters, preliminary injunctions, and other legal remedies to fight for your interests and protect the integrity of your trademark.

Our philosophy is to strengthen and secure your brand to sustain your business. We understand the importance of your brand as the face of your business and strive to provide you with the security you need to successfully establish your brand in a competitive environment. We place the highest value on your safety and the continued success of your brand.

Copyright protection

Our firm is your trusted partner in protecting your creative works and intellectual property from unauthorized use and infringement. Copyrights are critical to artists, authors, musicians, designers, and other creators. These rights are designed to ensure that creators can use and exploit their works and are fairly compensated for their work. In this regard, our firm is happy to assist in the registration of copyrights and the enforcement of copyright claims.

As an IT law firm, we understand the importance of the digital age and the many challenges it poses to copyright protection. We specialize in helping you defend against copyright infringement in the digital space, whether on websites, social media, or other online platforms.

We are passionate about protecting our clients' creative integrity and innovative ideas. In particular, we focus on drafting contractual clauses for individual rights of use, assignment, and the legal consequences of infringement.

In this context, we focus on the creation of comprehensive General Terms and Conditions (GTC) for your software contracts. In doing so, we always take into account your individual, company-specific requirements and ensure that your legal interests are protected.

But our expertise goes beyond advice. We provide comprehensive representation in cases of infringement of software, music, movies, computer games, photographs or text - whether on websites or social media such as Instagram, Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, TikTok, Linkedin or Flickr.

As an area of law designed to protect the intellectual creations of authors, it is important to understand its intricacies.
