Competition Law

Weiss ∙ Walter ∙ Fischer-Zernin also advises its clients in matters related to intellectual property rights, including trademark and copyright law.

We take energetic and systematic action to combat unfair behavior by competitors of our clients, taking the necessary steps for effective defense both out-of-court and incourt.

We also advise our clients in the planning of their advertising activities and help them to defend themselves successfully against any unjustified accusations of unfair competitive practices. We also advise our clients in all matters of patent and know-how licensing and draw up license agreements for this purpose.

We support our clients in national and international registration of eligible intellectual property rights, in particular the registration of patents and trademarks with the German Patent and Trade Mark Office (DPMA), the Office for Harmonization in the Internal Market (OHIM) and the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO).
