Trade Fair and Exhibition Services

Security for your trade fair appearance

Ideas, impetuses and contacts. Trade fairs are great sources of inspiration but at the same time can be hotbeds for counterfeits and imitations. It is of existential importance that you protect your innovations in advance of any exhibition at a trade fair. Our experts and specialist attorneys at law can also provide you with a wide range of services during the fair, regardless of whether you discover that your intellectual property rights have been infringed or if you yourself have been accused of committing such an infringement. We can help you to effectively secure your intellectual property and to defend yourself against attack.

What can we do for you? We advise you in the following areas:

On behalf of the proprietor:

  • Registering intellectual property rights
  • Preparing warning letters
  • Applying for preliminary injunctions against infringements of intellectual property rights
  • Filing border seizure applications at the Industrial Property Rights Department of German Customs Authorities (ZGR)
  • Colaborating offences
  • Colaborating with customs and/or the police concerning trade fair seizures
  • Supporting seizure operations at trade fairs

On behalf of the (alleged) infringer:

  • Defense against warning letters
  • Filing protective letters with the relevant courts and, where necessary, with the police and customs
  • Filing protective letters with the German central electronic protection letter register (ZSSR)
  • On-site support against trade fair seizures
