Mechanical Engineering

Thanks to long-time client rela­tion­ships in areas of pro­duc­tion tech­nol­o­gy, indus­tri­al automa­tion and con­vey­or tech­nol­o­gy, mea­sure­ment, con­trol and reg­u­la­tion tech­nol­o­gy, mate­ri­als tech­nol­o­gy and process tech­nol­o­gy, DTS is a high­ly qual­i­fied and reli­able part­ner in all ques­tions of buildup, analy­sis, expan­sion and man­age­ment of patent port­fo­lios with focus on mechan­i­cal engineering.

Mechan­i­cal engi­neer­ing is still one of the dri­ving, most inno­v­a­tive indus­tries in Ger­many and Europe. Patent appli­ca­tion sta­tis­tics are con­stant­ly led by mechan­i­cal engi­neer­ing indus­tries, the most numer­ous appli­cants. Mechan­i­cal engi­neer­ing is a sec­tor dom­i­nat­ed by medi­um-sized-com­pa­nies and in Ger­many, there are many hid­den cham­pi­ons that are world lead­ers, thanks to a fore­sight­ed indus­tri­al prop­er­ty right policy.

DTS is a reli­able part­ner of this indus­try and is well posi­tioned for advis­ing clients that focus on mechan­i­cal engi­neer­ing, as its experts are engi­neers from var­i­ous dis­ci­plines and enlight­en a tech­ni­cal issue from dif­fer­ent per­spec­tives. There­by, DTS appre­ci­ates that prod­ucts from the mechan­i­cal engi­neer­ing indus­try often ful­fill par­tial func­tions from oth­er dis­ci­plines such as elec­tri­cal engi­neer­ing that are real­ized simul­ta­ne­ous­ly and are to be pro­tect­ed in one sin­gle product.

In addi­tion, DTS has par­tic­u­lar exper­tise and expe­ri­ence in the fields of oppo­si­tion and inva­lid­i­ty pro­ceed­ings – and rep­re­sents its clients in these pro­ceed­ings in Europe, Ger­many and Switzer­land. In all oth­er coun­tries, DTS coor­di­nates these pro­ceed­ings with com­pe­tent and long-stand­ing partners.

DTS rep­res­ents its cli­ents’ inte­rests before the civ­il courts and in media­tion in cas­es of enforce­ment of such patents against infrin­ge­ments or defense of such patents in cas­es of litigation.
