Knowledge = Power & Sharing = Caring

Cliché, but true. We firmly believe that that knowledge is power and must be shared. We understand the maze and challenges of intellectual property law and make sure you understand it too. We do not fear putting ourselves out of business in the process. It is when the basic rules for good protection are clear that we can work intensively together to achieve the best protection whilst paying attention to details and moving forward.

What can be done instead of what cannot be done

We don't make things difficult if they can be made easier. With a strong legal basis, we provide practical advice in ready-to-use language. Efficiency and professionalism enable us to act quickly. For example, we can tell you within one day what the chances of success of a trademark are in China. Is there a chance that a brand will be refused? If so, we will be honest and come up with a creative and strategic action plan to make protection possible. We also always tell you in advance what something will cost. So, no more bureaucracy or surprises (unless, of course, there are good).
