Service

We are specialized in drafting and filing patent and utility model applications for technical inventions as well as in preparing and filing applications for trademarks and designs. For these intellectual property rights, we represent our clients in proceedings before the official authorities. We also advise on infringement disputes and licensing matters.

The patent attorneys of FINK NUMRICH have many years of professional experience and also worked in patent departments of industrial companies. Firms which do not have a patent department particularly benefit from our experience from industry. We can act as an “external patent department” for them.
