Meissner Bolte Patentanwälte Rechtsanwälte PartG mbB

Meissner Bolte Patentanwälte Rechtsanwälte is one of the leading IP law firms in Germany. For more than a century our 12 offices in Europe and the United Kingdom have been advising national and international clients in all areas of intellectual property. From prosecution to litigation and enforcement, we ensure that our clients’ ideas remain unique. Our clients’ goals and ultimate needs always remain the focus of the actions we take and advice we give. Our own IP protection recipe is the interplay between passion, commitment and know-how.

Meissner Bolte comprises approximately 70 highly qualified patent attorneys and lawyers with knowledge in the technology, science and legal sectors. We focus on competencies in our teams and collaborate with clients to succeed. Additionally, our team includes native English, Japanese and Chinese-speaking attorneys to provide our German and international clients with the best possible multi-industry and cross-cultural consultation services.

Our patent attorneys are specialist engineers and scientists in the disciplines of:

  • physics;
  • electrical engineering;
  • computing and information technology;
  • mechanical engineering;
  • medical technology;
  • chemistry and pharmaceuticals;
  • biotechnology; and
  • materials science.

In order to strengthen the links between technology and law, many of our patent attorneys have also earned an LLM. Our lawyers are equally fascinated by the interplay of law and technology, in many cases having qualified as lawyers specialising in the protection of industrial property rights, and provide cross-industry consultation in the fields of patent law, trademark and design protection, copyright law, licencing and unfair competition law.

Thanks to our interdisciplinary teamwork, we have broad expertise in a number of legal fields and create powerful and successful prosecution and litigation strategies that cover the entire IP protection spectrum.

Many of the patent attorneys and lawyers at Meissner Bolte are active in a wide variety of industrial and professional associations, including in prominent positions. Enjoying a regular exchange with colleagues at home and abroad, our professionals experience in real time all legislative and practice developments in the protection of industrial property rights, and our services remain in demand for our expertise in all cross-jurisdictional matters.

Meissner Bolte is committed to informing its clients, business partners and employees regularly and accurately about the latest develop­ments in IP rights. We hold frequent external seminars, internal training and lectures and offer newsletters written by renowned experts to keep clients abreast of important decisions in the German and European IP area and how these affect immediate and future practices.

In late September each year we hold our IP Days seminar, which details new developments in all fields of IP law and includes valuable examples to assist in daily practice. All of this is supported by an exciting programme that encourages attendees to network and reflect.

From start-ups to German small and medium-sized enterprises and DAX companies, Asia is increasingly becoming the focus of international IP strategies. At our annual Asia Seminar held each spring in Munich, we discuss IP developments, new guidelines and current practical examples to assist market players in this growing sector.

In addition to our seminars, we provide clients and interested persons with our newsletter MBMilestones to keep them informed about relevant IP decisions with particular focus on the impact on day-to-day practices.
