Gewerblicher Rechtsschutz

Erfolgreich ist nicht nur, wer die besten Ideen hat, sondern wer sie auch am besten umsetzt und schützt. Dies trifft heute mehr denn je zu, da die rasanten technischen Veränderungen den Gewerblichen Rechtsschutz stets vor neue Fragen stellen. In dieser Situation brauchen Sie Juristen mit jahrelanger Erfahrung und detaillierter Kenntnis technologieorientierter Industrien sowie ausgeprägter internationaler Kapazität. Dies ist genau, was wir bieten: Unser Fachwissen umfasst Patente und Musterschutz, Marken, urheberrechtliche Fragen, Designrecht, unlauteren Wettbewerb sowie den Know-how-Schutz. Wir vertreten unsere Mandanten auch in allen diesen Bereichen vor den Gerichten und Patentämtern.

Unsere Branchenexpertise umfasst unter anderem Life-Sciences, Technologie und Medien, Handel und Konsumgüter, Private Equity und Finanzdienstleistungen, Healthcare sowie Bildung und Forschung. Wir beraten sowohl multinationale Konzerne als auch kleinere, hochspezialisierte Unternehmen.

Spezialgebiete


Markenrecht

Unser Team ist regelmäßig in der Beratung im Bereich des Markenrechts tätig. Zu unserer Beratung gehört die Prüfung der Schutzfähigkeit von Marken einschließlich der Überprüfung etwaiger älterer Markenrechte, die Durchführung von Markenanmeldungen in Österreich und in CEE/SEE, von internationalen und europäischen Marken. Ebenso verwalten wir für unsere Mandanten deren Markenportfolio, verteidigen die Markenrechte gegen Eingriffe Dritter und verhandeln Lizenzverträge für unsere Mandanten.


Patentrecht

Im Bereich des Patentrechts liegt unser Schwerpunkt in der Prozessführung: Wir vertreten regelmäßig in Patentverletzungsverfahren, Verfahren über Arbeitnehmererfindungen sowie in streitigen Verfahren beim Österreichischen Patentamt. Weiters umfassen unsere Leistungen auch die Ausarbeitung und Verhandlung von Lizenzverträgen sowie von Verpfändungsvereinbarungen von Patenten und Gebrauchsmustern im Rahmen von M&A-Transaktionen.


Urheberrecht

Die technologischen Entwicklungen stellen das Urheberrecht vor immer neue Herausforderungen: Wann liegt eine unzulässige Vervielfältigung eines Werkes im Internet vor? Wie wird die Vergütung bei digitalen Speichermedien berechnet? Ist die Zweitverwertung von Sendungen durch Anbieter von Mobilfunkdiensten zulässig? Ist Geoblocking von Content noch sachgerecht? Unser Team befasst sich mit all diesen Fragen und entwickelt praktikable Lösungen für unsere Mandanten im Online- und im klassischen Offline-Bereich.


Unlauterer Wettbewerb

Beratung über unlauteren Wettbewerb gehört zu den Stärken unseres Teams. Wir beraten  Mandanten regelmäßig bei Fragen im Zusammenhang mit irreführender und vergleichender Werbung, Alleinstellungswerbung, Verletzung von Geschäftsgeheimnissen und vertraulicher Information sowie anderen unlauteren Geschäftspraktiken. Unsere Mandanten kommen aus traditionellen Branchen wie dem Einzelhandel, aber auch aus der Pharma-Industrie, Software-Unternehmen und neuen Online-Medien.


Rechtsdurchsetzung

Dies ist eine unserer größten Stärken. Im Laufe von über 20 Jahren hat unser Team für Gewerblichen Rechtsschutz Expertise im Führen von Gerichtsprozessen zur Durchsetzung und Verteidigung von gewerblichen Schutzrechten entwickelt. Ein Schwerpunkt liegt dabei in der Erwirkung oder Abwehr von einstweiligen Verfügungen. Ebenso sind wir auch im Bereich des geistigen Eigentums in Schiedsverfahren und alternativen Streitschlichtungsverfahren tätig.
