What we do.
Grund IP Group offers a broad range of intellectual property services for a variety of tech-focused enterprises. Our international team includes professionals with qualifications before a variety of offices and courts, thus affording our clients access to an impressive menu of intellectual property rights.

IPR Strategy

Strong IP holdings are commonly a company’s hottest commodity. Knowing what to protect, how and where, represent the core of a prudent IPR strategy. Recognizing that there is no “one size fits all” solution, we step outside the box when working with innovators to extract and maximize the value of their inventions by developing a smart IPR game plan.

Patent Acquisition

Obtaining a patent often takes patience and an understanding about the art of negotiation. Our technically qualified experts have the experience you need for securing valuable patent rights in a broad range of scientific fields. Our professionals are qualified before a number of different patent & trademark offices, such as the European Patent Office, the European Union Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO), and the respective national patent offices located in Germany, Austria, the UK, and the US.

Licensing

Intellectual property is often the single most valuable asset of any technology-driven enterprise.  We endeavor to enter any transaction with a thoughtful appreciation for our clients’ goals, which allows us to carefully develop an effective approach for capitalizing an existing patent portfolio, or create strategic value through partnering or asset acquisition.

Contentious Proceedings

“Getting in the ring” requires proven professionals. We aggressively represent clients during opposition hearings and appeal proceedings before the European and German Patent Offices, in addition to patent litigation matters / nullity proceedings at the German patent courts. We have also fought battles before the German Supreme Court and the European Court of Justice.

Vigilance in Diligence

It’s a jungle out there. We routinely counsel our clients on how to navigate competitor wildlife. A patent offers the potential to act as a significant barrier that can exclude the competition from selling products or offering services. We understand that when evaluating the pertinent commercial IPRs and technical landscape when developing our infringement and invalidity opinions and conducting due diligence analyses.

Trademarks & Designs

What’s in a name? Is your creation aesthetically brilliant? Trademark & design portfolios should be carefully selected and pursued. We work hard to understand our client’s position and aims, so we may wisely select protection strategies considering geography, budgetary guidelines and available enforcement mechanisms.

Who we are.
Our multilingual professionals offer strong technical backgrounds and impressive credentials earned from distinguished universities situated around the world.
