„Congratulations to our new European Patent Attorney!”

“We are pleased that with Dr. Lorenz Obrecht, after successfully passing the European Qualifying Examination (EQE), our team is reinforced by one more professional representative before the European Patent Office.”

As a full-service intellectual property boutique, GILLE HRABAL cover all technical and legal fields and services, offering specially developed services related to the protection of your intellectual property through patents, trademarks and designs. We represent our clients before the European Patent, Trademark and Design Offices as well as other national IP offices in Europe, such as the German, Austrian and Luxembourg Offices. Through our network, we cover every country worldwide in any IP related matters.

We offer advice and support to individual inventors as well as to medium-sized companies and large corporations which form the majority of our clients that we represent all around the world in both prosecution and litigation. Conducting state-of-the-art and freedom-to-operate searches and evaluations is also a part of our typical duties for both our domestic and international clients. For our domestic clients, we provide counsel on how to obtain the best possible protection for their ideas and intellectual property.

For our international clients, where we are responsible for the representation in Europe, we provide advice and counsel on how to achieve the best possible scope of protection or other goals of the client, based on the existing patent application. We assist you in defending your intellectual property rights in opposition and nullity proceedings as well as in attacks arising from third-party intellectual property rights, both in and out of court.

We also take action on your behalf against infringers of your intellectual property rights, always keeping an eye on opportunities for out-of-court solutions. In addition to the usual services of a modern, internationally operating one-stop-shop IP law firm, we offer our clients special, dedicated services. Contact us to find out more!
