We enforce your patents
Papst Licensing GmbH & Co. KG was established in 1992 by its founder Georg Papst. In 1993 the patent licensing firm acquired the entire patent portfolio of Papst-Motoren, the company founded by Georg Papst’s father Hermann Papst, and set out to take active action against patent infringements on the international level. Papst Licensing built up an international network of experts for monetizing infringed patents concluding over 170 license agreements with virtually all renowned companies in the IT and electronics industry.
Georg Papst’s sons Constantin and Daniel followed into the business and today Papst Licensing offers practical support to third parties facing patent infringements of quality patents with the aim to secure licenses from infringers. Operating investor independent, Papst Licensing’s owner family is in the third generation of licensing and advancing innovation.
In case no amicable resolution can be obtained Papst Licensing is determined and experienced in enforcing its rights in Court especially in the US, the Netherlands, Switzerland, Finland, France, Italy and Germany.
