Quality + Responsibility

Company Profile

The patent law firm Grättinger · Möhring · von Poschinger advises and represents German and foreign clients in all fields of national, European and international industrial property rights.

Qualifications

All the patent attorneys working in our office are university graduates in engineering or physics (besides their legal qualifications), so that we are in a position to provide our clients with well-founded advice over a broad technical spectrum


Company philosophy

Activities

Along with national and international companies, we also advise and represent private individuals, e.g. as inventors, in regard to the legal protection of technical developments by patents and utility models, aesthetic creations (design) by registered designs and characteristic product or company identifications by trademarks.

Experience

When drawing up and filing property rights applications and defending as well as enforcing these, we can build on the many years of experience in our office, which was founded in 1959, both at the Offices and before the Courts. This includes important Supreme-Court decisions of the Federal Supreme Court both in patent and trademark cases, which we have been able to obtain for our clients.

Main emphasis of our activities

We are primarily active before the European Patent Office (EPO), the German Patent and Trademark Office (DPMA), the Federal Patent Court (BPatG), the World Intellectual Property Organisation (WIPO), the Office for Harmonization in the European Union for Trademarks and Registered Designs (OHIM) as well as all the relevant Civil Courts in Germany.

Strategy

In property rights conflicts and property rights infringements we assist our clients in drawing up suitable attack and defence strategies, taking into account economic interests. For enforcement of the property rights of our clients we also represent their interests towards third parties out of court, using our experience to bring about contractual arrangements. In cases of legal proceedings, we cooperate with well-known attorneys at law and we can look back on many cases which have been brought to a successful conclusion.

Network

Via our widely branching network of cooperating offices in all the relevant countries of the world, we also provide our services on an international level. This applies both to our domestic clients requiring property rights abroad and also to foreign clients requiring property rights in Germany and Europe.

Our international emphasis is also expressed by means of our membership in IPG-International Practice Group, a leading international network of lawyers, accountants and tax specialists.
