Trademark protection - national and international

Often own trademarks are the highest intangible assets of a company – the building up, maintaining and defending of trademarks should, therefore, not be seen as a side scene that can be overlooked. Only as the proprietor of a protected trademark can you defend yourself effectively against infringements and actually enforce the rights, which belong to you. Vice versa adequate and appropriate research leading up to the application for a trademark ensures that you are not violating the rights of others.

What is valid for trademarks is also valid for domain names. It is not unusual for domain registration to already form trademark facts – therefore strategic considerations make sense in advance. Of course, collisions should be excluded before application. If a third-party domain infringes your trademark rights, then your rights have to be enforced. Purchase negotiations can possibly also be an option if your desired domain is already rightfully held by another party.

In the area of trademarks and domains I support you with the following services:
  • Trademark and domain research
  • Application for national and international trademarks.
  • Protecting and defending trademarks and domains against legal infringement
  • Defending against injunctive relief
