The successful registration of a utility model does not require an examination of its content carried out by the German Patent and Trade Mark Office (DPMA – Deutsches Patent- und Markenamt). After a short examination concerning the formal requirements of the application, the utility model will be registered within a period of about three months after which you can already assert your rights against third parties.

In order to be able to take legal steps against an infringer, the utility model should be defined as precisely as possible as this is the only way to profit from a wide scope of protection so that your utility model will even stand up to a possible substantial examination.

We help you to elaborate an as wide as possible scope of protection for your utility model and we conduct the application procedure for you
