Mechanical Engineering and Process Technology

Most companies engage in innovation. Existing processes are improved thanks to or with machines. In the mechanical engineering and process technology sector, innovations come along in rapid succession. And not just in production companies. Research institutes also contribute significantly to the high number of patent applications in this sector.


The various production companies and research institutions operate in a dynamic market, in which it is vital to have an effective Intellectual Property strategy. Our patent attorneys speak the language of the sector and use their knowledge and experience to optimally advise you and support your patent applications.
