We are a Nuremberg-based patent law firm specializing in advising and representing medium-sized companies in all national and international matters of intellectual property. Our aim is to provide our clients’ ideas and innovations with optimal legal protection. In order to avoid legal disadvantages in protecting ideas and innovations, it is of particular importance to seek legal support at an early stage.
Patents are used to protect technical ideas (objects, methods and substances) from imitation. In order to acquire a patent, the technical idea has to be described within the framework of a patent application. A patent is granted on the basis of an examination by the relevant patent office into whether the technical idea is novel, inventive and industrially applicable. The economic value of a patent resides primarily in the wording of its claims, which set out the scope of protection.
