VISCHER's Intellectual Property group is renowned for its longstanding practice and excellent track record in every field of intellectual property (patent law, copyright law, trademark and design law), including related areas such as unfair competition, data law, and advertisement law. 

Our IP experts represent clients in IP litigation (before the Swiss Federal Supreme Court, the Federal Patent Court, the Federal Administrative Court and cantonal courts across Switzerland) as well as in IP-related international arbitration. In addition, we advise on complex commercial transactions such as licensing, R&D co-operations, technology transfer, franchising, joint ventures and IP due diligence in M&A matters.
