“Either we will find a way or we create one!”

Client first

Our philosophy is based on the comprehensive, competent and punctual provision of advice to our clients for an attractive price, which shows that IP management and cost awareness are indeed compatible. Certainly, we also wish to make money, but we do avoid any expenditure that might benefit us but not our client, and pass on this cost advantage to you. One example is our decentralized organization, which relies on an extensive network of cooperation partners in more than 25 countries world-wide.

But eventually pay enormous amounts of money for IP rights that are of no benefit for them. According to our experience, companies, which do not regularly review their patent and trademark portfolio, impro-perly invest between 20 and 30 % of all their cost with respect to the maintenance of these IP rights. This cost can be saved. In addition: companies that have never carried out such a review before could easily save 50 % and more.

SPEAKING YOUR LANGUAGE

Every attorney promises his clients to provide them with the best possible consulting services. However, experience has shown that most of all the good intentions don’t become reality because of the fact that two worlds collide that don’t understand each other. In the following, you will find some absolutely provoking statements of how we imagine proactive and modern IP support.

  • Patents are no scientific publications but means for companies to protect R&D investments and to enforce and expand their market position.
  • Patent protection should stand at the beginning of a project and not at its end.
  • “Time-to-planet” means to file an application as soon as you can define the technical problem and have a concept for its solution.
  • A patent requires novelty – a patent application only requires a clever attorney. A search report without any X-documents proves that the application claims were drafted too narrowly.
  • Anyone who is willing to spend a six digit amount on R&D projects but who finds a four digit amount spent for the saving of this investment is too much behaves careless at best. But in the worst case he harms his company.

Where we are located. In the heart of the lower rhine area

Our office is located in the old oil mill belonging to the Castle of Rheydt, the oldest renaissance castle in North Rhine Westphalia embedded in a birds protection reservation, one of the very few breeding areas of the famous ice bird in Germany. Originally a castle dating from 1060, the palace has evolved over the years to become the palace it is today. The castle’s first documented mention dates to 1180, made by the Cologne Archbishop Philip I when he mentioned revenues that were to be collected from the then castle owner, the Lord of Rheydt, in his corres-pondence. The first Lord of the castle mentioned by name is William of Heppendorf. In the 16th century Otto von Bylandt gave the palace its existing exterior renaissance façade and made this place to the center of the upcoming textile industry.

Throughout the 19th century the palace changed hands many times

Throughout the 19th century the palace changed hands many times, however the owners were unable to maintain the palace due to the upkeep costs. Gradually the palace fell into disrepair. The palace was purchased by the town of Rheydt from the last private owner in 1917. Since then the palace has undergone some restoration and has been converted into a museum. The castle of Rheydt is famous for its an annual mediaeval festival and the summer open air music festival, which is also sponsored by IP2.

We build the future

 As of January 1, 2019, we announce the association with our US colleagues Dilworth & Barrese, LLP.

Another bad day for bunnies. This time it was the purple milk bunny and for a change it was not about the infringement of trademark rights, but about a violation of the labeling obligation for food, which the judges at the Bremen Regional Court had to decide on (12 O...
