Domains

Digitalization has captured the world of trademarks, but today, it is imperative to combine online marketing with the right domain name. Stake your claim in the virtual universe so that your brands and trademarks receive the digital awareness that they deserve.

Especially online, trademark registrations should go hand-in-hand with domain name registrations. Without proper domain names, your company and its products cannot appropriately be marketed, searched for and purchased on the Internet. Visibility and awareness are paramount.

Trademark Filing

A trademark that captures the heart and soul of your corporation or product is worthless if you are not the only one that can use it.

Filing a trademark application allows for protection even before commencing use. Employing professional support will help your trademark develop fast without you having to worry about it. Dennemeyer will take care of the trademark filing process, and deal with any subsequent issues that might arise.

Trademark Monitoring

Watch your competitors and be on the lookout for possible trademark infringements. We monitor the global applications of identical or similar trademarks, advise you on the appropriate steps and be ready to take immediate action if needed.

After securing the registration of your trademarks, enforce them to prevent others from taking advantage of your reputation. Without monitoring the trademark-filing activities of third parties, it will be challenging to become aware when someone infringes on your brands.

Design Filing

We file wherever you want us to, combining the expertise about local procedures with the scope of a global full-service provider for IP management.

Being an important and often underestimated aspect of Intellectual Property, designs must be protected from the start and before disclosure to the public. Dennemeyer helps you defend your creation through all stages of its life cycle, worldwide.

Design Searches & Opinions

Designing means to create something unique with a specific purpose in mind. But what happens if someone has already done it before?

Dennemeyer's Design Searches and Opinions service helps you discover if your designs are new or have already been protected by someone else.  

Recordals

Companies sometimes change their name, and more often than not, IP rights are sold. Either way, it is crucial to keep the IP offices up to date to be able to make use of the rights. But complex administration in different countries is time-consuming and can often result in lapses.

At Dennemeyer, we have developed a notably secure and easy procedure for recording changes in patent, design or trademark registers, which saves costs and reduces risks. Our IP attorneys are experts in all local requirements and have streamlined workflows.

EP Validation

Dennemeyer helps you generate efficiency gains on time by handling the validation of your granted European patents in all relevant countries.

Successfully going through the prosecution and grant stage has allowed you to obtain your European patent (EP). The next step is to get it validated in each country where you seek protection, which requires the fulfillment of time-consuming and burdensome formalities. Dennemeyer will take over and help you complete the procedures in one single instruction.

Patent Filing

After you made sure that your patent draft has your invention covered on all sides, it is time to lodge a patent application with the required authorities. Now you need to be fast and diligent. Better make sure you have the best IP services available at your side.

Filing your patent with the proper international or local authorities is not the flashiest process of monetizing your invention. Dennemeyer can consult on the best filing strategy matching your business plan.

Patent Searches & Opinions

Before deciding to get your invention drafted and filed, do a patent search and get an opinion from an experienced patent attorney.

Reinventing the wheel is not only embarrassing, but it can also become quite expensive. Has anybody done it before, and is it worth doing? Should I move on with patent drafting and patent filing? These are all questions that an inventor should consider before moving on to obtaining a patent. Employing the services of a globally active Intellectual Property full-service provider like Dennemeyer will always get you unbiased answers that will help you make the best possible decision regarding your invention.

PCT Nationalization

With the increasing speed of globalization, it is essential to protect your company's IP assets in several regions. The Patent Cooperation Treaty (PCT) enables you to obtain patents in multiple jurisdictions through a streamlined application process.

The Patent Cooperation Treaty (PCT) enables inventors and applicants to seek patent protection and increase their chances of obtaining patents in multiple jurisdictions simultaneously through a streamlined filing procedure. The PCT system allows one to postpone the decision in which countries to seek patent protection for up to 30 or 31 months (or more) and enter the national/regional phases of a PCT application in well over 150 jurisdictions.

Supplementary Protection Certificates (SPCs)

Due to the time and money-consuming procedure for getting a marketing authorization (MA), extending the duration of patents by getting an SPC is a great solution.

The SPC is a national protection right granted by the national patent office of the member states of the European Community. Depending on the time it takes from the filing day of the patent up to the grant of the MA, an SPC can extend the duration of a patent up to five years.  Our highly qualified patent attorneys can advise with the best SPC filing strategy to secure the longest possible protection for your patented products

Working Statements

When your company decides that it is time to access the Indian market — one of the most important future markets worldwide — remember that, after the patent has been granted, you need to file a so-called 'working statement' yearly.

Under the Indian Patent law, you are required to file a yearly statement on the extent to which your patented invention has been worked on a commercial scale in India. If non-worked, reasonable arguments and suggestions as to how the patent will be used need to be provided to the patent office. Dennemeyer can support you with filing these working statements, so you do not need to worry about the bureaucracy. Our service also includes a plausibility check of your statements to avoid the patent becoming unenforceable.

Anti-Counterfeiting

Goods infringing Intellectual Property rights are difficult to detect by consumers or in-house IP departments and even more challenging to eliminate. Here is where our experts come into action.

Counterfeit or "fake" goods, as most consumers perceive them, create an enormous liability to both manufacturers and retailers. In today's global economy, the more popular the brand, the more likely it is to become the target of counterfeiters and experience a loss in both reputation and revenue. The Dennemeyer Group, with global offices and wide-reaching networks, can efficiently handle multi-jurisdictional branding issues as a single group and help you identify and eliminate key counterfeit offenders.

Copyright Enforcement

Copyrights play a significant role in almost all areas of life, especially in the internet era, where the need for copyright protection is prevalent. With the help of copyright law, creative people can make a living out of their content. However, the use and exploitation of or dealing with copyrights is not always easy. Even the design of your website bears some risks. Is someone using your work without a valid license? Did you receive a warning for the unauthorized use of a photograph? Our experts will be happy to you to find the right strategy.  

Enforcement of copyright claims of any kind (injunctive relief, information, damages and cost reimbursement claims) both in and out of court. Identifying and suspending illegal copies on the Internet, especially on online platforms. Defense against warning letters.

IP Litigation

Does someone infringe on your trademarks or patents? Enforce your IP and catch the copycats! Or, are you threatened with legal action? Our experienced legal experts are ready to get in the ring for you.

IP litigation includes infringement actions, FTO and validity opinions, pre-court actions, preliminary injunctions and injunctive relief, actions on the merits, enforcement, invalidity actions and counterclaims for revocation as well as oppositions. Dennemeyer will support you in all legal disputes.  

Opposition & Nullity

If a third party evokes a right against your patent or trademark (applications), or Dennemeyer's Monitoring service has identified a risk to your portfolio, it is time to take immediate action.

Dennemeyer handles opposition procedures before the patent and trademark offices either through our experts or in cooperation with local associates. As applicable per jurisdiction, we conduct nullity actions against third party rights before the offices or courts.
