Our competence for your right

We support home and foreign industrial enterprises as well as medium-sized clients, but also individual smart minds in all fields of industrial property protection.
Because of the central location of our office in Graz as well as the traditional mining city Leoben, we work, above all, for home clients from Styria, especially from Graz, and the neighbouring provinces Upper Austria, Carinthia, Lower Austria and Burgenland as well as for clients from Vienna.

Our competences include in particular the drafting, prosecution, defense and enforcement of patent applications and patents, trademark applications and trademarks, and registered design applications and registered designs (designs).

  • Austrian Patent Office (ÖPA)
  • European Patent Office (EPO)
  • World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO)
  • European Union Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO)
  • Federal Office for Health and Food Safety
Besides that, we advise our clients concerning all issues in this field, for example preparation of legal opinions with relation to patent infringements or validity of patents, legal opinions concerning brand infringements, assessments of patents and patent families according to ÖNORM/Austrian Standards, the negotiations and preparation of licence agreements as well as issues of employee inventions.

Prosecution proceedings may last occasionally for several years, being conjoined by significant costs. By continuous automatized analysis we are in a position to forecast expected costs for the patent families of your patent portfolio.
To pursue our clients' interests abroad, we rely on a well-established worldwide network of communicating lawyers and patent attorneys which enables us effectively to enforce our clients' interests.

We represent foreign clients in Austria, among other things, concerning the validation of European patents in Austria, application of supplementary protection certificates as well as application and prosecution of patents and trademarks before the Austrian Patent Office, European Patent Office and European Union Intellectual Property Office, opposition and nullity proceedings and the enforcement of patents and trademarks against third parties.
