Fields of activity
It is essential for obtaining protection in the field of mechanical engineering to accurately define what is to be protected in a generalised form and in comparison with the current state of the art. For this purpose it is of great importance to pay attention to a precise wording. Wrong usage of certain terminology will lead to unnecessary limitations of the scope of protection. It is advisable to use newly created expressions or expressions with specific inherent meaning in order to gain a scope of protection which is as wide as possible.When working out either German or European patent applications we make sure that all requirements of U.S. Patent Law concerning the disclosure are already met. Excessive costs for potential U.S. applications to be filed later can be avoided in this way.
