Then you could be just right with us.

We attach particular importance to appreciative and open dealings. In doing so, we take into account the interests of all parties involved in order to provide outstanding and professional services for selected clients.

  • Performing patent searches
  • Participation in workshops for inventors, evaluation and prioritisation of results and transfer to one database
  • Weekly and monthly reporting

  • Creation of simple technical sketches
  • Objective and functional description of the invention
  • Preparation and review of search strategies for carrying out patent searches

Our offer:

We offer you the opportunity to work without a patent attorney and the possibility to become a co-inventor. You and your opinion are important to us, you are in direct touch with the decision-makers and get the opportunity to be part of a rapidly growing team which you can and should actively contribute yourself and your creativity.

Appreciative interaction means a lot to us and we work with professional coaching tools.
