Thinking in market terms
Turning successful research into successful products or services often does not work in practice. That is because different stakeholders think in different languages. The scientist thinks in terms of equations. He ponders about the technical feasibility. The attorney thinks in terms of paragraphs. He is interested in the concepts of novelty and inventive step. We, the Patentverwerter, understand our role as an intermediary between these worlds. We think in terms of markets. And are the missing link between research and business. We stand for successful technology transfer and make sure that intellectual property finds its way into the market.

Appreciating your research
Inventions arise from all different kinds of context. What they have in common, however, is that their development usually costs a lot of energy. The spontaneous inspiration in the proverbial garage rarely occurs. In order to invent something new, one must constantly try, measure, reject and negotiate. A high amount of personal effort is required. We know about it. Appreciating your research work is, therefore, part of our self-conception. Discretion and the protection of your intellectual property are equally important. Our ability to work as a partner justifies the trust our clients have in us.
“If I had asked the people what they wanted, they would have said:
a faster horse.“
Commitment at all stages
Projects are usually successful when viewed as a whole. Not in different subsections. For us, your patent is a project which we would like to accompany you with from the starting point to the finish line. We have expertise in all stages of the patent lifecycle: From the idea over the registration, the utilization and monetization (assignment, licensing, founding a company) to the treatment of expiring patents. We also assist you in developing a holistic patent strategy. Start your marathon with us.
