DTS Patent Law Firm

Being home to the Euro­pean Patent Office (EPO), the Ger­man Patent and Trade­mark Office (GPTO) and the Fed­er­al Patent Court DTS is locat­ed in one of the ‘hubs of intel­lec­tu­al prop­er­ty’ in Europe. Cor­re­spond­ing to this loca­tion we at DTS ded­i­cate our­selves to the pro­tec­tion of our clients’ tech­ni­cal inno­va­tions and cre­ative achievements.

As an asso­ci­a­tion of patent attor­neys and attor­neys-at-law as well, DTS – in addi­tion to fil­ing and admin­is­tra­tion of patent and trade­mark appli­ca­tions – is able to pro­vide legal advice in all areas of indus­tri­al prop­er­ty as well as copy­right law and unfair com­pe­ti­tion. In par­tic­u­lar, DTS suc­cess­ful­ly rep­re­sents its clients in infringe­ment and inva­lid­i­ty proceedings.

Being already famil­iar with the intel­lec­tu­al prop­er­ty of our clients, the com­bi­na­tion of legal and tech­ni­cal expe­ri­ence of our attor­neys ensures the max­i­mum ben­e­fit for our clients when offer­ing advice with regard to any area of patent law. Tak­ing eco­nom­ic impli­ca­tions into con­sid­er­a­tion, DTS cov­ers all aspects of intel­lec­tu­al prop­er­ty, includ­ing procur­ing, enforc­ing and licens­ing of patents in Europe, espe­cial­ly with respect to an opti­mized strat­e­gy for pros­e­cu­tion, lit­i­ga­tion and licens­ing. DTS thus helps to gen­er­ate patents craft­ed to with­stand tests of inva­lid­i­ty in infringe­ment pro­ceed­ings. In addi­tion, DTS also assists with car­ry­ing out IP-Due Dili­gences.

In the areas of copyright‑, trademark‑, design- and unfair com­pe­ti­tion, DTS offers com­pre­hen­sive expert advice to artists, pub­lish­ers and pub­lic rela­tion com­pa­nies. Fur­ther to pros­e­cu­tion of infringe­ments, DTS is involved in the draft­ing and nego­ti­a­tion of con­tracts and pro­vi­sion of gen­er­al legal advi­so­ry ser­vices to our clients.
