Other Protective Rights

We also advise our clients regarding other available ways to protect their intellectual property in Germany and elsewhere, for example as utility models or designs.

We have particular experience in the field of supplementary protection certificates for pharmaceuticals (SPCs) and extensions due to pediatric studies. We advise our clients regarding the filing of a supplementary protection certificate in order to provide the broadest possible scope of protection, and represent the case during prosecution at the German Patent and Trademark Office – and, if necessary, in appeal proceedings before the German Federal Patent Court or the German Supreme Court (BGH).
