SBGK Attorneys at Law and Patent Attorneys

With 50 years of professional experience, SBGK Attorneys at Law and Patent Attorneys provides outstanding services in all areas of commercial law – particularly IP law – to both domestic and international clients from more than 20 sectors. Our lawyers and patent attorneys have decades of experience in all fields relating to the defence and enforcement of IP rights. SBGK's clients can rely on our attorneys and patent attorneys to have the expertise needed to secure IP rights and use these acquired rights.

With oversight by attorneys and patent attorneys, SBGK’s team of paralegals provides quick and precise services, including managing IP rights portfolios, preparing patent annuities payments, preparing trademark searches and patent freedom to operate searches, and completing trademark, domain and customs monitoring-related work. SBGK's IP department is well known as a reliable, innovative, consistently available and up-to-date legal service provider.

SBGK’s attorneys are qualified to represent clients before the EU Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO), the EU General Court and the European Court of Justice (ECJ). For example, SBGK represented clients in a first preliminary ruling referral to the ECJ in a Hungarian trademark case. Similarly, SBGK’s patent attorneys are all registered as European patent attorneys and can represent clients before the EPO and the EUIPO.

SBGK’s attorneys and patent attorneys attend international seminars and conferences every year to stay ahead of the competition. They are also frequently invited to speak as guest lecturers at Hungarian and international events, the results of which are numerous publications. SBGK also organises conferences, roundtable discussions and international symposia in Hungary.

In addition to SBGK’s strong IP practice, the firm helps foreign investors to set up their European businesses and provides them with all of the necessary legal services in relation to company establishment, mergers and acquisitions, employment law matters and various other commercial transactions.
