The team of our patent attorney and law firm comprises a specialized team of attorneys at law and patent attorneys, and a number of administrative assistants.
Already at the foundation of our firm one of our goals was to override the traditional, in Switzerland widely-used, separation between on the one hand the fields of the registration and administration of industrial property rights and on the other hand the judicial enforcement of such industrial property rights: Patent attorneys and technology experts work together in a team with attorneys at law and trademark attorneys.
The unique close factual and local collaboration of lawyers and engineers, whose expertise especially covers areas such as mechanical engineering, computer science, chemistry, biotechnology, materials science and electrical engineering, is unique for Switzerland and allow for the providing of comprehensive advice to our clients and for the giving of interdisciplinary advice on complex legal and technical issues. Apart from representing clients in court, registering industrial property rights (especially trademarks, patents, designs) as well as giving general legal advice (distribution, publishing and software agreements, franchising, licensing etc.) we counsel on application strategies, furnish legal opinions or prepare legal and technical analysis for our clients.
In more than 120 countries worldwide we closely collaborate with other law firms also specialized in the areas of the legal protection of intellectual property, industrial property and copyright. We are therefore fully capable to represent the interests of our clients abroad. Thus interdisciplinary exchange and integral judgement of factual issues regarding intellectual property may be placed ideally into the service of the client.
