Intellectual Property and Copyright Law, with a focus on Trademark Law

In the course of trade as well as in private life – to a certain extent – the principle of freedom of imitation applies. Successful products and ideas may be copied by third parties. But copying constitutes an infringement of rights if such products or ideas are protected by an intellectual property right.

Your intellectual property shall belong to you – signs, product names, designs, individual concepts, know how and inventions. ARQIS assists you to protect and defend your intellectual property.

ARQIS gives advice to start-up companies as well as to global corporations in all fields of intellectual property and copyright law with a focus on » trademark law «.
