Searches - Information as a foundation for decisions

Information on patents and trademarks is available in public and commercial databases in various forms. Our knowledge of the structure and content of these databases allows us to use the right search strategy to provide the information sought by our clients quickly and economically. The information provided helps our clients to make well-based business decisions.

For example, we carry out patent or trademark searches for technical innovations or new marks of our clients, in order to obtain a decision-making basis as to whether and to what extent the elaboration of a patent or trademark application makes sense. It also includes the research and examination of a new development with regard to possible violations of third party's rights of protection ("freedom-to-operate"). Of course, we also search relevant state-of-the-art technology, which can be used as a basis for an opposition or a nullity action against third-party IP rights.
