Skills, experience and individual service

Munich’s newest IP law firm with decades of history

With us, your intellectual property is in the utmost competent hands

Our firm is located in the center of Munich, right in the heartbeat of Europe’s IP developments: German Patent and Trademark Office (GPTO), European Patent Office (EPO), Federal Patent Court (BPatG) and Unified Patent Court (UPC) all having their seats here. S2W2 continues with an accumulative 30 years of experience: Robert Schraud, Stefan Waibel, Karl-Heinz Wohlfrom and Axel Schmitt-Nilson are successors to KSNH Patentanwälte Klunker Schmitt-Nilson Hirsch, co-founded by Gert Schmitt-Nilson and Peter Hirsch.

The partners have jointly and successfully been supporting clients for more than 10 years. They have now put together a team that offers custom-tailored services in all fields of intellectual property protection: you will find the right expert for your case among 13 qualified patent attorneys – and you can rely on the expertise of all of them.

One stop shop for intellectual property protection

Patent law, utility model law, trademark law, design law and law on employee inventions guard your intellectual property from copying and unauthorized use. S2W2 gives advice and protects your position in the following areas: nationally before the German Patent and Trademark Office (GPTO), before the Federal Patent Court (BPatG), and before the Federal Court of Justice (BGH). Supra-nationally before the European Patent Office (EPO), before the European Union Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO), before the Unified Patent Court (UPC), and before the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO). For worldwide protection, we are cooperating with handpicked partner firms abroad. We are also negotiating license agreements and out of court settlements with your competitors, clients, and suppliers.

Patent law is our main focus

S2W2 mainly focuses on patent law. Our team consists of qualified and experienced patent attorneys with degrees from highly renowned universities in the field of mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, information technology, physics, and chemistry. Investors and developers will find a contact person who is highly competent to assist in transforming their ideas into patent applications, while looking after them until the patent is granted by the German Patent and Trademark Office (GPTO), the European Patent Office (EPO), or the national Patent Offices abroad. In addition, we routinely safeguard your interests with regards to opposition, validity, and infringement proceedings and consult on all matters relating to the law on employee inventions.

Personalized service according to your needs

S2W2 is the ideal size to offer a personal contact service with an attorney, while providing the expertise of a diversified IP law firm. We are flexible and can easily adapt to your individual needs: we adjust our services according to your internal processes, we manage data and documents regarding your protective rights in your web-based internal IP management systems, and we bill our services via your preferred e-billing solution. Our goal is your satisfaction – and to maximize the success of your case.
