Industrial property rights & competition law

We create and protect values.

One core competence of the law firm SBS is the consulting and out-of-court as well as in-court representation of clients in the legal field of industrial property rights.

The use of the internet and the associated and further increasing digitalization makes the business environment more dynamic. This way, intellectual property rights on trademarks, designs, images, patents and technologies are becoming increasingly important and a basis of business success.

We are specialized in securing and establishing corresponding proprietary rights. Our focus points include consulting on

  • structuring and
  • legally compliant use, and
  • exploitation of intellectual property.

A further focus of our work is on the defense against unjustified written warnings issued under competition law or the regulation of justified warnings.
