What can we do for you?
Our IP professionals cover all services relating to IP protection (patents, trade marks, designs, domains, designations of origin (DO-PGI), unfair competition, copyrights, due diligences, etc.) in Spain, Europe, and worldwide. We represent our clients in opposition, nullity as well as revocation proceedings, and draw up strategic advice on the prosecution, registration and defense of IP rights.
Our European and Spanish patent attorneys and attorneys-at-law advise and assist clients in all legal and technical matters concerning patents, patent applications and supplementary protection certificates. Our team represents applicants before the European Patent Office and the Spanish Patent and Trademark Office.
Our attorneys-at-law and trademark and design attorneys register Spanish, European and international trademarks and designs whilst representing clients at the Spanish Patent and Trademark Office, the European Intellectual Property Office and the World Intellectual Property Office. Further areas of expertise are domains and designations of origin.
We draw on many years of experience in drafting comprehensive expert opinions on infringement issues and the validity of IP rights. Such insights are often the cornerstone of successful litigation. Our IP professionals are also very experienced in evaluating patent portfolios and issues relating to freedom-to operate and due diligence as well as reviewing license and/or demarcation agreements.
One of our great strengths is that we can closely cooperate with the many IP professionals working at the other HOFFMANN EITLE offices. These include IP specialists from countries such as Germany, the United Kingdom, Italy, France, The Netherlands, USA, Japan, Korea and China. These specialists enable the firm to provide multilingual advice supported by knowledge of various IP systems and the respective legal traditions in their home countries. In addition to this in-house group, HOFFMANN EITLE has a well-established regional and global network of associates.
