Research into the fundamental laws of nature has always driven technological progress, fueling new developments and inventions. Some findings led to the emergence of new fields of technology essential for modern life, such as semiconductor technology or laser technology. Even today, physics continues to be the foundation for new technologies with a tremendous impact on current and future developments, such as quantum computing, quantum communication, and medical technology.

Experts at Grünecker are knowledgeable in virtually all significant fields of physics and benefit from deep, first-hand experience in many physical subfields.

In addition to a solid background in patent prosecution, many of our attorneys have built up a strong patent litigation practice, partnering with the firm’s litigation attorneys. We leverage this interplay between prosecution and litigation to your benefit when drafting and prosecuting your patents, as well as in opinion work.
