MAIWALD PATENTANWALTS- UND RECHTSANWALTSGESELLSCHAFT MBH > Firm Profile
As one of Germany’s largest and best-known firms in the field of intellectual property, Maiwald’s foremost aim is to achieve the best possible solution for each client in each particular case. Maiwald employs about 220 people working out of Munich and Düsseldorf. The interdisciplinary teams work closely with each other and with foreign associates, always with an eye to the client’s particular needs, whether start-up, mediumsized firm or large corporation, across all industrial sectors. Maiwald’s team does its utmost to ensure that all IP matters are handled with competence and care, irrespective of the client’s physical location, whether in Germany, Europe or beyond.
Client-oriented solutions and personal consultation are at the heart of Maiwald’s professional approach. About 80 highly qualified patent attorneys, attorneys-at-law, and technical experts, an in-house patent search department and numerous client-specific teams of paralegals put their extensive range of skills and experience at clients’ disposal in order to arrive at the best possible customised IP solutions. Client satisfaction is evidenced by the long-standing business relationships with many prestigious corporations.
Main Areas of Practice:
Maiwald advises and represents domestic and international clients from all technical fields across the entire spectrum of intellectual property law. When appropriate, an interdisciplinary exchange of information and expertise can take place between various teams, ensuring that the optimal solution is achieved in each particular case.
Maiwald’s Patent Attorneys:
Maiwald’s team of patent attorneys combine their expertise across various technical fields and advise and represent clients across a wide range of industries.
- Pharma & Biotech
- Organic Chemistry & Polymers
- Inorganic & Construction Materials
- Food & Agriculture
- Electrical & Mechanical Engineering
- Communication & Information Technology
- Mobility & Energy
- Displays & Light

- Medical Technology & Imaging
Maiwald’s patent attorneys have extensive experience in the management of international patent portfolios. Services include drafting and filing patent applications and coordinating worldwide prosecution as well as defending, enforcing and contesting IP rights. Patent attorneys also prepare freedom-to-operate (FTO) opinions based on thorough research and analysis to establish whether existing IP rights of third parties could potentially stand in the way of a client’s particular product or manufacturing process. Clients also benefit from the exceptional expertise in opposition and appeal proceedings before the German and European Patent Office as well as in infringement and nullity proceedings before the national courts.
Maiwald’s team of attorneys-at-law can boast many years of experience in trademark, design, copyright, and contract law as well as patent infringement litigation, particularly in the conduct and coordination of international litigation proceedings.
The firm’s legal expertise includes:
- Patents & Utility Models
- Supplementary Protection Certificates
- Trademarks & Designs
- Competition & Antitrust Law
- Contract Law
- Employee Invention Law
- Pharmaceutical Law
- Data Protection
- Plant Variety Protection
Close cooperation between patent attorneys and attorneys-at-law is especially important in patent infringement litigation, since this type of proceedings generally calls for a comprehensive overview of the various national regulations as well as a thorough grasp of the particular technology. The interdisciplinary teams provide a comprehensive package of services to guarantee the successful conduct of legal proceedings in an international arena, also in cases where speed is of the essence, such as in preliminary injunction proceedings or border seizure procedures.
However, Maiwald’s attorneys-at-law would be the first to acknowledge that litigation is not always the best solution. They are skilled advocates in arbitration and mediation proceedings and are trusted experts when it comes to negotiating licensing contracts.
