Our attorneys handle legal proceedings before IP authorities on a daily basis. For instance, oppositions, cancellation actions and objections against (provisional) refusals. We are also at your service when it is time to take action against infringers or if you yourself are accused of infringing a trademark, design or other IP rights (copyright, trade name, design right, domain name).

We are committed to clear advice and straightforward follow-up. Together, we look at all the options, work out the desired strategy and take action. In doing so, the right tone of voice is important. It may be friendly, or it may be forceful, always with the goal in mind.





Acting on infringement of a trademark or design.



Keep your trademark or design unique and do not let others profit from it. As a proprietor, you have to take active action yourself, because authorities (unfortunately) do not.



Sending a summon letter, filing opposition, negotiate co-existence (agreements), conducting legal proceedings.

If necessary, you bite the bullet. It took blood, sweat and tears to invent, design, produce, launch and protect a brand or model. The last thing you want, of course, is for copycats to steal it. If that does happen and your trademark or design is copied - either consciously or unconsciously - it is wise to put a stop to it. That can be done with a cease and desist letter. But sometimes it can also be interesting to give someone else permission to use your trademark or design under certain conditions. So that you can earn even more by issuing a licensing contract.

In short: every situation is unique and requires an approach that feels right and achieves its goal. That is exactly what we do.
