Economic success is not determined solely by the number of factories, sites, machines and other tangible assets. It is the people that make the difference – their ideas, concepts and inventions.
This intellectual property can be protected. The importance of IP has risen considerably in recent years and IP now counts as one of a company's most important assets. IP includes patents, brands, designs, software and much more.
IP rights influence supply and service relationships within and between companies, often across borders. The right strategy can be decisive for corporate success.
The demands associated with IP are manifold and complex. Differing national regulations also need to be taken into consideration, such as changes in legislation or the most recent court rulings. Reconciling the strategic positioning and economic goals of the business with national and international conditions is a major challenge. With our global network and professional expertise, we are well-positioned to assist you with this challenge.
Internationally, the options for protecting IP rights are as diverse as the countries themselves. Here too, it pays to maintain an overview by drawing on the right expertise to make the right use of your IP rights.
