Small or medium-sized enterprises

To many small or medium-sized enterprises, revisiting the company IPR strategy offers the opportunity to gain competitive advantage. Many clients in this segment have a small or no IPR division in-house and are therefore dependent on outsourcing IPR assignments.

Sharing the most valuable resources of a company is a matter of trust. We act as our clients’ trusted advisor and sparring partner in all IPR matters worldwide. We help and advise on matters such as drafting, prosecution, freedom to operate (FTO) analysis, IP administration, licensing, oppositions, litigation, trademark and design registration and much more.

We have the capacity to take full responsibility for our clients’ entire patent or trademark portfolio or simply relieve our clients from bottleneck situations when the workload temporarily gets too heavy. No assignment is too insignificant or too overwhelming for us.

Ultimately, we help our clients generate tangible financial results by defining clear IPR objectives through a creative, flexible and professional process.
