Whether patent protections and utility models, trademark and design protections, licensing and proprietary methods agreements, internet rights, software rights or employee inventions: we offer competent and qualified counsel to fit your specific needs, from the initial development to post-market launch of your products and services.

The law offices of Bals & Vogel offer the best possible protection for your inventions, brands, proprietary methods and designs.
