Awapatent has more than 110 patent attorneys, and over 60 of them are European Patent Attorneys, meaning they can represent clients before the EPO. They have broad and deep expertise knowledge in all industries, e.g. Automotive, Building/construction, Cleantech, Food/beverage, Life sciences/pharma/medtech, Manufacturing/process industries, Material technology/nanotechnology, and Software/IT/telecom. They support clients with not only creating and renewing IP rights but above all the analyses, strategies and business discussions to make the most out of the intellectual assets.
Awapatent also has about 40 attorneys at law, and about 35 of them are European Patent Attorneys or Design Attorneys. They are experts in all areas of IP law, such as trademark law, contracts, licensing, design, copyright, marketing law, internet law, and domain names, but also handle dispute resolution and litigation.
We continuously develop specific services for topic areas. Some recent examples are a Startup offer, a Unified Patent Court offer and an Open innovation offer.
