Based in Munich, at Home in the World of Electrical Engineering
Since the foundation of our law firm in 1999, electrical engineering has been one of our core competencies. Our patent attorneys cover a wide range of technologies in electrical engineering, information technology and communication technology, ranging from analog circuitry in all frequency ranges via digital circuitry and automotive electronics to power electronics, sensor systems, measurement technology and automatic control as well as communication technology and all areas of computer technology.
Not just electrical engineering, but our passion
A multitude of today’s technical accomplishments are based on engineering achievements in communications and electrical engineering as well as information technology as a link to computer science. Computers and the Internet of Things (IoT) are being used in an ever increasing number of products, varying from microsensors woven into clothing to smart refrigerators to next-generation networked cars. In addition to classic fields such as energy engineering, circuitry or automation technology, including measurement technology and automatic control, the field of electrical engineering is continuously advancing into further fields of technology and/or interacting with them on an interdisciplinary basis. This requires comprehensive technical expertise and scientific understanding of the underlying technologies. The support of an experienced patent attorney is therefore a great asset for our clients to ensure the patent protection of the many resulting innovations.
Expertise you can trust
Our patent attorneys have been accompanying the development of modern telecommunications infrastructures for years and have in-depth knowledge of IEEE 802.11 and 3GPP standards. Our technical expertise on 5G is also reflected in our achievement of the highest grant rate for European (EP) patent applications among one of the top 3 applicants (based on the number of EP patents granted in 2020 according to studies by inventorship and ipQuants AG).
