Intellectual Property & Unfair Competition

Of pioneers and plagiarists ... or: protecting your rights is our art.

We assist Austrian and international companies from all business sectors with developing, managing and enforcing their industrial property rights.

Property rights

More than ever before, products, services and companies are defining themselves by labels, brands, slogans and the like. More than ever, as trade barriers are dismantled, they are threatened by free riders, imitators and counterfeiters. Yet, many companies still regard brands, trademarks, tradenames, designs, patents and copyrights as mere buzzwords without really knowing how to use these important business tools. Our role is to make sure these tools are used correctly and to provide tailored solutions for setting up, managing and enforcing an intellectual property portfolio, thus enabling our clients to achieve strong brand positioning in the marketplace and recognition by a targeted audience.

Competition law

Counterfeiting is a common, unfair business practice of competitors, as are defamatory or misleading statements. We support you in fighting anti-competitive behaviour on the one hand and check if your advertising is compliant on the other.

Needless to say we are happy to answer your questions on the commercial use (licensing, sale, pledge) and acquisition (purchase, licensing) of IP rights. Our services also include advice on all issues relating to digitalisation, such as e-commerce, IT outsourcing and software.
