WHERE GREAT MINDS COME TOGETHER
Thanks to our patent attorneys’ wide-ranging technical and scientific specializations, our Brunswick office can provide consultation services covering a whole spectrum of areas. This office concentrates primarily on patent law in the areas of mechanical engineering (including precision engineering), physics, chemistry and material technology as well as on trademark and design law. Another area of specialization is IT law.
In Brunswick, the city of Henry the Lion, there is a long tradition of great thinkers. The identity and character of this city of science, with a population of approx. 250,000, has been shaped by luminaries and pioneers such as Carl Friedrich Gauss and Agnes Pockels. Over 15,000 people are employed across approx.
250 high-tech companies and 27 research institutions. These include the Brunswick University of Technology, the Helmholtz Centre for Infection Research (HZI), the German National Metrology Institute (PTB), the German Aerospace Center (DLR), Europe’s second-largest research airport, the Julius Kühn Institute (formerly the BBA), the Fraunhofer Institute for Wood Research (WKI) and the Johann Heinrich von Thünen Institute (formerly the FAL).
The German Federal Aviation Office (LBA) and the German Federal Bureau of Aircraft Accident Investigation (BFU) are also based in Brunswick. In addition, the city is the site of the district court responsible for IP law in the state of Lower Saxony and for the designated higher regional court.
