Department Legal Services and Intellectual Property
The Legal Basis for New Business Areas and Projects
In a young technology-based company, the task of Legal Services is to channel the dynamics and embed them in lean processes. Providing solutions is our mission. We create the legal basis for new business areas and projects - the path on which the company travels safely and quickly - with as few obstacles and twists as possible.
Professionally, our work is very versatile. Alongside the usual legal fields of a limited liabilty company, we focus specifically on intellectual property, patents, R&D and license agreements. We support our employees in projects with all contractual issues, the management and the company with corporate and strategic issues. We are sparring partners for new ideas and goals.
