karo IP – Your Patent Attorney in Düsseldorf

Those who seek effective protection for their innovations find themselves confronted by an environment in which conditions are changing ever more rapidly. Its challenges, along with an increase in the complexity of intersecting technologies and fields of international law, are virtually impossible to negotiate nowadays without a concerted team approach on the part of the professional consultants. This motivated us to form a patent attorney team that collectively embodies all of the skills and expertise needed to address the specifics of your particular case, one that can provide you with quick, comprehensive and interdisciplinary assistance in order to patent your idea.

That team, which bears the name karo IP, therefore comprises specialists in a number of different technical, scientific and legal disciplines, and it enjoys the support of highly qualified and experienced professionals. At our offices in Düsseldorf and Munich, our team offers for your projects the appropriate patent attorney.

20. November 2020

Die Konnektivität von unterschiedlichen Geräten spielt vor allem in sich schnell entwickelnden Technologiebereichen (Telekommunikation, Internet of Things, ...) eine entscheidende Rolle bei der Umsetzung von Innovationen. Oft setzt diese Konnektivität die Nutzung von Kommunikationsstandards voraus, die durch Patente, sog. standardessentielle Patente (SEPs), geschützt sind.
