Protecting the brand equity you’ve built.

Z I E R H U T * I P is a leading and award-winning boutique law firm, working discreetly for brands all over the world. We cover global issues from Europe, the United States and China and we protect our clients from counterfeiting, click-fraud and Adwords-Hijacking and all other forms of trademark infringements.

We have solutions

There are no simple fixes in the fight against product piracy.

This is why we use the entire arsenal of measures provided by civil, customs and criminal law to develop after an analysis an effective strategy to eleminate infringements and counterfeits. Our priority is always to keep the costs risk to our client as low as possible. To do so, we claim the costs for the proceedings from the infingers and their customers.

Unique expertise in enforcing trademark rights

For over 15 years now, we have been assisting clients in their fight against product piracy. We were one of the first law firms to file border seizure applications from the year 2002 on and to work direct with customs.

Brand protection and successful border seizure – these are our core competencies

We advise at every stage on registration, licensing and prosecution of your trademarks. We represent our clients regulary cross-border before the EU Trade Mark Office, the World Intellectual Property Organization, the EU Trade Mark Tribunals and the European Court of Justice and the US Patent- and Trademark Office USPTO.

In addition, we work closely with the EU and US customs authorities to prevent cross-border trade and parallel imports of counterfeit goods into the EU.

Due to our 15 years of practical experience, we have a close network of international correspondent attorneys and direct relationships with customs and law enforcement agencies. We have a great deal of experience, which allows us to successfully proceed against product pirates in the respective countries of origin as well.

We are excited about what we do. And this enthusiasm is reflected in results.
