Utility Models

The Small Patent

Utility models are considered to be the "little brother" of patents. Obtained within a few months without substantive examination, a utility model provides quick (additional) protection of products. Germany, France, Italy and Spain and a number of other European countries offer the possibility to file utility models. We provide comprehensive advice on all aspects of utility model law and coordinate cross-national filing strategies from our offices in Europe or using national representatives.
