karo IP is an intellectual property law firm based in Düsseldorf, Germany.

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.

karo IP is recommended by IAM PATENT 1000: The World’s Leading Patent Professionals (latest handbook was published in July 2022), which annually selects the top lawyers, law firms and companies worldwide in the area of patent law. The broad technical spectrum of the firm is mentioned, especially the sectors automotive, smart technology and software.
