Intellectual Property Lawyers

The success of a company springs from its ideas. By obtaining, defending and licencing various property rights ranging from trademarks to designs, patents, protection certificates and utility models, this potential is transformed into financially measurable company values. A cohesive IP strategy, including both commercialisation and enforcement, will ensure you get maximum value from your portfolio.

With 150 IP-lawyers in 39 countries, we understand your business needs. CMS has worked with some of the best-known brands and we specialize in representing companies from the lifesciences, pharmaceutical, medical products, media, telecommunications, clothing, computer and consumer goods industries. We advise and represent clients during trademark registrations and similarity examinations, handle their trademark portfolios and potential breaches of their trademark, design, patent and protection certificate rights, and prosecute product piracy for our clients at customs authorities and courts across Europe. Our expertise extends to parallel and grey imports, sales rights and associated legal fields such as pharmaceutical products, media, telecommunications and broadcast law.

The right brands will win the hearts and minds of your customers. The right patents will prevent others exploiting your ideas or provide a substantial barrier to market access. Copyright, know-how and designs also play a vital role. In the event of a breach of property rights, we support our clients in asserting their rights before courts and criminal courts. Our range of services includes warnings, injunctions, lawsuits and border confiscations as well as the increasingly important international assertion of intellectual property rights.
