Intellectual Property is our core competence

Our vision

As one of the leading law firms for Intellectual Property, we want to set the national and international standard in all fields of IP consulting and be the first choice for the European market. As employer, we want to offer employees modern, contemporary working conditions and a participative corporate culture.

Our mission

We focus on creative solutions which are “state of the art” in all questions of Intellectual Property. With our legal expertise, broad technical spectrum and recognised specialist competence on all levels, we offer all services in and around IP. In so doing, we anticipate trends, always work in line with current standards and offer personal consultation as special and typical feature of our service.

Client benefits

We ensure our clients are free in their actions, assert their interests and create for them a competitive advantage by protecting their products and innovations effectively with practical and efficient IP solutions so that they can act freely as regards third-party rights.

Our promise

We are strategic consultants for our clients in all questions in and around IP and offer creative solutions for the entire spectrum of Intellectual Property services, exclusively oriented towards the benefit of the client.


Creativity and a thirst for research know no bounds. As a law firm for the protection of intellectual property, we are at home all over the world and value diversity of perspectives, qualifications and experience. People from 21 nations work for us, spanning generations and regardless of their religion, sexual orientation or identity. We see this self-image as the basis for our innovative strength and our entrepreneurial success in advising regional and global clients.
We have been a member of the international initiative to promote diversity in patent teams ADAPT since 2023.


As part of our core activities, we essentially plan and act in accordance with the guidelines of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) adopted by the United Nations in 2015 as part of the 2030 Agenda.

In addition to the aspects of our mission statement already mentioned, we see environmental protection and resource conservation as the central goals of our sustainability strategy. As a European law firm, we are therefore committed to the EU action plan for climate neutrality, the European Green Deal, and are making our contribution to the United Nations’ Paris Climate Agreement.

Our declaration on twenty criteria of the German Sustainability Code (Deutscher Nachhaltigkeitskodex, DNK) with supplementary performance indicators for the 2022 reporting year is published on the DNK website.
