Schalast | Trademark Law
We advise and assist our clients in obtaining trademark protection from the outset in deciding whether an application should be filed, how it should be filed, and where it should be filed. We conduct clearance searches and continue with filing applications at the national, international and European (EU) levels. We are thoroughly familiar with the proceedings and practices in the German Patent and Trade Mark Office (DPMA), the European Union Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO) and the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO). We are also experienced specialists in the drafting of coexistence, license, and transfer agreements.
We are dedicated to protecting our clients against the infringement of their trademarks and against claims brought against them by third parties, and we litigate such cases in courts of law throughout Germany. We are committed to monitoring trademarks and handling border seizures to safeguard our clients’ rights. We handle lawsuits and interim injunctions before courts as well as opposition proceedings and invalidity proceedings before the German Patent and Trade Mark Office (DPMA) and the European Union Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO). We are experienced specialists in the drafting of coexistence and license agreements.
We use our own in-house trained paralegals and administration software that has been custom-designed for our firm in order to seamlessly record and monitor German, EU and International Trademark registrations on behalf of our clients.
