Business Meeting

With our firm listed among the Top 10 Trademark Application Filers in Austria, we will advise and represent you in all aspects regarding trademark protection. In a personal first meeting we will inform you about your possibilities, available and suitable property rights as well as the first steps on your way to trademark protection. This first consultation is free of charge, non-binding, confidential and can also be conducted by telephone or video conference.

Trademarks and trademark applications

Protectability evaluation:

We evaluate whether your trademark or company logos is fit for trademark protection and meets the criteria of registrability.

Trademark application:

We will gladly guide you through the process of trademark registration, including the preparation of a suitable list of goods and services, filing the application with the respective Office and answering all official notifications. 

IP strategy:

We offer consultancy, preparation and evaluation of individually tailored IP registration strategies, taking into account all advantages and disadvantages, as well as the associated costs.

Trademark protection in other countries:

Via our worldwide network of cooperating attorneys (for example in the USA, China, Japan or Russia), we organise and coordinate abroad trademark applications as your (single) central point of contact.

IP portfolio management:

We will gladly be entrusted with managing and evaluating your IP portfolios and keeping track of important deadlines including the due payment of renewal fees.

Opposition and cancellation proceedings:

In order to remove potentially dangerous or disruptive third-party IP rights, we prepare and conduct opposition or cancellation proceedings.

Trademark searches:

We organise and carry out need-based searches, e.g. identity searches, similarity searches, IP monitoring, freedom-to-operate searches and legal status searches.

Infringement of IP rights:

We assess trademark infringements and, respectively, infringements of your trademarks by competitors’ trademarks. In addition, we prepare and respond to IP warnings and cease-and-desist letters, prepare infringement opinions, negotiate and seek out-of-court solutions and prosecute product piracy.

Freedom-to-operate (FTO) analysis:

We organise freedom-to-operate projects, e.g. for due diligence, and plan and conduct FTO research and evaluate the results, on which basis we then prepare risk assessments..

Seminars and workshops:

We are happy to offer ready-made or customized seminars and workshops on various IP topics, as well as training courses for IP departments and in-house counsels on substantive, legal and administrative topics, e.g. introduction to IP rights, IP strategies or the current jurisdiction in Austria and at the European Patent Office.


We will be happy to advise you on possible subsidies and support and accompany you in the process.

Expert opinion:

Our expert opinion on the evaluation and assessment of industrial property rights, validity and infringement is available to you at all times.


Be sure to benefit from our many years of experience in the fields of negotiating and drafting coexistence agreements, purchase agreements, license agreements and co-ownership agreements. Additionally, we will gladly support you in the transfer of intellectual property rights.
