DTS mana­ges patent port­fo­lios in the area of auto­mo­tive and suc­cess­fully pro­se­cu­tes patent app­li­ca­ti­ons in Europe, espe­cially at the Euro­pean Patent Office.

The cli­ents app­re­ciate the sche­dule and bud­get loy­al faith­ful patent pro­cess of DTS. Due to the expe­ri­ence of the attor­neys of DTS with the com­pe­tent liti­ga­tion courts, DTS pro­se­cu­tes patent app­li­ca­ti­ons so as to ensure that the scope of indi­vi­dual patents is opti­mi­zed in the respec­tive coun­tries for liti­ga­tion purposes.

DTS ana­ly­zes exis­ting rights of third par­ties with respect to a poten­tial threat to the pro­ducts of the cli­ent and drafts com­pe­tent opi­ni­ons on (non-) infrin­ge­ment or on the ques­tion of invalidity.

DTS also suc­cess­fully sup­por­ted the sale of com­pa­nies wit­hin an IP due dili­gence — here the cli­ent and the law firms mana­ging the due dili­gence pro­cess bene­fit from a deep know­ledge of DTS lawy­ers in the field of port­fo­lio ana­ly­sis and employ­ee inven­ti­ons accor­ding to Ger­man law.
