Patent law and utility model

Patents represent an important and visible result of your research and development work and are at the same time a significant milestone for the future success on the market of your enterprise in technology-fired competition.

For many years, Notos has been representing entrepreneurs and companies in the assertion of their existing patent and utility model proceedings - by attack or defence.

Procedural specialities require that the litigant attorneys possess special knowledge. Technological properties set special challenges for the process-accompanying patent attorneys. Thanks to our good contacts with numerous patent attorney chambers in Germany and through our international network of experienced patent attorneys we are always in a position to bring in outstanding patent attorneys with specific, technological knowledge and know-how.
