In-Court and Out-of-Court Representation


CMS is one of Germany’s leading law firms when it comes to acquiring and defending intellectual property rights. We represent our clients before the courts in all aspects of these matters. Our experts conduct lawsuits right up to the Federal Court of Justice (Bundesgerichtshof – BGH) and before European courts.

We find solutions that enable you to move forward

In international disputes, our lawyers advise on and coordinate legal action together with partner firms in the CMS organisation, as well as selected foreign attorneys.

We conduct arbitration proceedings and represent clients in mediation (Alternative Dispute Resolution – ADR).

Acting in good time helps to limit the damage

We possess extensive specialist knowledge of border seizure proceedings, e.g. at ports and airports. We can thus take effective steps to prevent infringing products from entering the country.

If rights are being breached, our lawyers are able to obtain temporary injunctions at short notice (e.g. at trade shows) through any German court. Depending on the particular circumstances, we can even obtain a court order and enforce it within 24 hours. This enables us to safeguard your rights effectively.
