Wherever Innovations Are Created –
Imitators Are Never Far Behind.

We Take Care Of Innovators – And Imitators.

Since 1924, Grünecker has been protecting and defending the intellectual property rights of its clients: from global corporations to mid-sized companies and start-ups. Working with colleagues and international law firms, we are active worldwide – acquiring intellectual property rights, enforcing them and fighting international infringement proceedings.

For us however, social skills are just as important as professional expertise. That’s why each of our clients is assigned a like-minded and personally compatible contact person for their individual support.
