Due Diligence and Freedom-to-Operate

We carry out due diligence examinations in the field of industrial property rights. Where necessary, we collaborate with international teams of lawyers, frequently with a focal point in the USA or Great Britain.

Our strength is our ability to understand and analyse complex legal and technical issues rapidly — particularly where these involve an international connection. Our clients profit in particular from our technical and legal expertise in combination with our many years of international experience. We support you in negotiating contracts and accompany M&A transactions with a focus on questions relating to intellectual property.

In this context, we determine the value of patents, trademarks and domain names.

Our freedom-to-operate searches increase security before market launch. We prepare expertises on whether products and product designations might infringe patents and trademarks. This can also include expert opinions on the validity of industrial property rights.
