Our extensive experience and a high degree of specialization have earned us our long-established reputation as specialists in intellectual property. Our clients include businesses from all industry sectors and of all sizes, from start-up to international conglomerates.

We also support you when it comes to IP protection in the digital space. With the advent of the metaverse and the use of NFTs as digital assets, brand owners are faced with the challenge of protecting their brands within these new virtual environments. There is a need to track trademark infringement and take legal action when necessary to preserve the reputation and value of your brand. For some time now, creative works such as digital artwork, avatars or virtual environments in the metaverse can be traded as NFTs. We assist in answering the questions of how copyright law applies to such digital works, who owns the copyrights, and how they can be protected.

1:1. This is how we work together. You decide upon a competent partner; he/she will then remain your point of contact. > more
