About us

Our clients include international and national companies of varying sizes. We represent large companies, as well as small and medium sized businesses; furthermore we are pleased to say that our clients also include a multitude of individual inventors.

Our great strength lies in the fully integrated client care we offer, which already commences during research and development, and is always consistently continued up to registration and beyond. The early involvement in research and development issues helps in avoiding duplicate inventions and in realising potential conflicts with competitors at an early stage. At the same time we aim to recognise existing potential and develop and implement an ideal protection strategy in co-operation with our clients. It is our aim always to assist our clients with advice during every phase, and to be in a position where at the end we can hand over a product (the industrial property right), which provides our clients advantage over their competitors.

Our tools of the trade consist on the one hand of many years of experience in the field of intellectual property, and on the other hand of the ability to individually address the needs of our clients, and thus be in a position to develop tailored solutions, which are adjusted to our clients' environment. Although we are based in the centre of Vienna, we aim to attend to all of our clients personally, and in doing so also bear in mind that particularly small and medium sized businesses will often not be able to come and visit us in our offices. We are also used to advising our innovative clients in remote areas of Austria, on site if necessary.

We are highly committed to the training and continuing professional development of our employees, and thus we are proud to be able to have access to staff which consist of qualified and well trained specialists, who support the three managing partners.

All of them are Austrian patent attorneys, as well as European patent and trademark attorneys, who have set up a tight network of contacts with foreign colleagues, and who can thus practically guarantee professional services world-wide. They regularly represent clients before the relevant national and European offices and courts, whereby a particular emphasis is placed on clearly explaining and illustrating the complex processes pursuant to the EPC, PCT, MMA, MMP, the Regulation on the Community Trademark and the Regulations on the EU Community Design, and their respective advantages and disadvantages to our clients, in order to create a basis for making a decision which best takes into consideration the existing framework conditions.

We have close co-operations with leading Austrian law firms for patent and utility model infringement litigation, in order to guarantee optimum client care for our clients even after the respective property rights have been granted.

The renewal of industrial property rights and the payment of fees connected to this, and the monitoring of time limits can be carried out by us on a world-wide basis, if so desired. We will remind you in time of a fee that is about to become due. The payment of the respective fee is carried out by us in good time, if so instructed. For this purpose, our firm does not only have the necessary know-how, but is also redundantly equipped with redundant systems for monitoring deadlines, which guarantee reliable reminders and payment of the respective fees.
