Firm Profile:

RENTSCH PARTNER is a leading Swiss attorney at law and patent attorney firm, we advise and represent clients in all aspects of intellectual property law – transactions, proceedings and complex cases both in a domestic and a global context.

We offer our clients comprehensive legal and technical advice, support them in the creation and implementation of their IP-strategy, implementing the patent box, and represent them before public authorities and in court. It is important to us to identify legally and technically sustainable solutions to complex legal issues and to keep in mind our clients’ commercial goals.

One focus of our activities is to advise Swiss companies and SMEs that want to protect and enforce their intellectual property rights and innovations worldwide at reasonable cost. Accordingly, we guarantee professional and industry knowledge as well as a good price-performance ratio.

Expertise, entrepreneurial thinking and binding values are important to us, both within our firm as well as towards our clients.

The team of our patent attorney and law firm comprises a specialized team of attorneys at law and patent attorneys, and a number of administrative assistants.

Already at the foundation of our firm one of our goals was to override the traditional, in Switzerland widely-used, separation between on the one hand the fields of the registration and administration of industrial property rights and on the other hand the judicial enforcement of such industrial property rights: Patent attorneys and technology experts work together in a team with attorneys at law and trademark attorneys.

The unique close factual and local collaboration of lawyers and engineers, whose expertise especially covers areas such as mechanical engineering, computer science, chemistry, biotechnology, materials science and electrical engineering, is unique for Switzerland and allow for the providing of comprehensive advice to our clients and for the giving of interdisciplinary advice on complex legal and technical issues. Apart from representing clients in court, registering industrial property rights (especially trademarks, patents, designs) as well as giving general legal advice (distribution, publishing and software agreements, franchising, licensing etc.) we counsel on application strategies, furnish legal opinions or prepare legal and technical analysis for our clients.

In more than 120 countries worldwide we closely collaborate with other law firms also specialized in the areas of the legal protection of intellectual property, industrial property and copyright. We are therefore fully capable to represent the interests of our clients abroad. Thus interdisciplinary exchange and integral judgement of factual issues regarding intellectual property may be placed ideally into the service of the client.
