Who we are
GULDE HENGELHAUPT ZIEBIG & SCHNEIDER is a well established patent and trademark firm with offices in Berlin, Munich, Hamburg, Halle, Greifswald and Beijing, China. Founded in 1990, our firm is large enough to cover all fields of intellectual property protection but small enough to give individual and careful attention to every case.
What we do
Our firm represents your legal interests before the German Patent and Trade Mark Office, the European Patent Office, the Office for Harmonization in the Internal Market in Alicante, German civil and administrative courts, the German Patent Court, the Federal Court of Justice, the European Court of Justice and the International Bureau of WIPO.
We act on behalf of domestic and foreign clients in every aspect of intellectual property protection. The professional advice we offer covers the elaboration and filing of patent and utility model applications, the enforcement and defence of protective rights, matters concerning the German Employee Inventors' Act as well as issues to do with trademarks and design patents. Other key areas of our activity are the provision of expert opinions as part of a protective right evaluation, due diligence and the analysis of third-party rights, the drafting of license agreements and the handling of copyright and competition law cases.
Our teams of highly qualified patent attorneys and attorneys-at-law will assist you in enforcing your protective rights and devising market-oriented strategies for your company, for instance patent and trademark portfolio management or strategies to accelerate the registration of your protective rights.
