Was wir bieten

What we offer

Peter Bittner and Partner, European Patent Attorneys offer competent legal advice in all matters concerning European and International Patent Law. Further, consulting in IP Strategy and IP Portfolio Management belongs to our core competencies.

Our expertise is based on more than 10 years of experience in the Software Industry where we specialized in the patenting of computer implemented inventions (CII) in Europe.

We put our highest emphasis on quality. We create your IP assets to also comply with the major patentability requirements of the patent offices in other important markets, such as the Chinese or US market. Especially for software related inventions those requirements differ considerably between important patent offices. Therefore, we draft patent applications for your software innovations which will serve you as an excellent basis for protection in those other markets, too.
