My singular focus
Protecting your TRADEMARKS
HOLGER GENSMANTEL: IP ATTORNEY
MY SKILLS & SERVICES
A trademark gives you a legal monopoly and competitive advantage.
Secure and defend it.
My skills are broad: from trademark clearance searches, applications, maintenance, monitoring, enforcement to licensing. I have comprehensive experience in combating counterfeiters, offline and online. I enjoy each aspect, and love supporting clients in the protection of their trademarks.
I've have always been drawn to brands and the impact they can have.
The defense and exploitation of trademarks can be expensive. Working with me is the opposite. I advise pragmatically and strive for solutions that meet your goals.
