Patent protection


PPatent protection


With a patent, you can protect any technical invention (device or process) against imitation. The maximum term of protection is 20 years. A prototype is not required to apply for a patent. The patent application must be submitted to the Patent Office before the invention is first published.

One advantage of the patent is that the Patent Office examines the protectability. This provides certainty as to whether the invention is actually new and inventive. However, it can take several years before a patent is granted. If you need protection quickly, we recommend that you apply for a utility model at the same time, which will be registered after just a few months.

We will be happy to check whether patent protection is possible for your invention and carry out all the necessary work for you.
