Patents represents a complex part of our work because it involves in all cases interdisciplinary understanding of the legal and technical area. For some complex cases, handling a patent case involves the cooperation of the patent attorney with a specialist in the concerned area of practice and such a partnership is always in the client interest and benefit.
Successful client representation involves primarily a deep and solid understanding of all the direct involved and adjacent matters and we address all our capabilities for this purpose.
