Schwan Schorer & Partner is a Munich based patent law firm. Founded in 1964 by patent attorney Gerhard Schwan, the firm takes pride in a 50 years history of providing competent advice in all areas of intellectual property. Also in Munich are the headquarters of the European Patent Office, the German Patent and Trademark Office as well as the Federal Patent Court. This allows our attorneys to have easy and direct contact with the examiners from these offices, often on an unbureaucratic level. We can also participate in oral proceedings and hearings without incurring travel expenses.
The major part of our work involves representing medium and large-size companies from Europe, the U.S. and Japan. Many of our clients have been relying on our expertise for several decades and entrust us with their IP matters.

We provide services for our clients in a broad range of diverse technical areas including, medical engineering, vehicle and aircraft construction, process and measuring techniques, optics as well as in mechanical engineering and plant construction.

One of our main activities is the representation in patent examination and opposition proceedings at the German and the European Patent Office.

Due to our long-term cooperation with colleagues in many countries all over the world, we are able to assist our clients in grant procedures and the enforcement of protective rights worldwide. We are particularly active in the U.S.A.

The correspondence with our clients and the authorities can be conducted in either German or English; this includes the preparation of application documents and the participation in oral proceedings.
