Firm Overview:
As the country’s largest IP team, RENTSCH PARTNER is a leading Swiss IP-firm, founded in 2001 and based in Zurich, with specialists in all areas of intellectual property. RENTSCH PARTNER advises national and international clients in all areas of IP law and related legal areas. As the first law firm of its kind in Switzerland, since its inception RENTSCH PARTNER has combined the entire spectrum of industrial property services provided by attorneys at law and patent attorneys in one legal firm and using one common infrastructure.

Main Areas of Practice: 

Patent Prosecution & Litigation:
The firm's patent attorneys and attorneys at law provide support for technical innovations from the initial research stage to national and international registration and legal enforcement. Apart from non-litigious application and prosecution of industrial property rights, RENTSCH PARTNER handles and coordinates patent litigations, both in Switzerland and abroad, and has represented clients before the EPO for many years. The uniquely close factual and local collaboration of lawyers and professionals, with expertise in areas such as mechanical engineering, computer science, chemistry, biotechnology, materials science and electrical engineering, is unique for Switzerland and allows its clients to obtain comprehensive and interdisciplinary advice on complex legal and technical issues.

Trademarks, Company Names, Designs, Unfair Competition & Copyright Law:
RENTSCH PARTNER offers specialised services, where applications and registrations for trademarks and designs are concerned. Due to the firm’s integrated model, experience gained from disputes and litigation conducted under civil law also flows into non-litigious advice on applications and strategic advice on portfolio building. Similarly, the expertise acquired during prosecution of applications and the constant maintenance of its network ensure fast action in infringement cases, not only in trademark and design law, but also in related areas such as company name disputes, unfair competition claims, and copyright matters.

Technology Law & Digital Economy:
The firm has a dedicated group dealing with contracts and general terms & conditions, counselling/best practices, and litigation in the fields of information technology, data protection and blockchain. For disruptive technologies, a multi-disciplinary legal approach is required. RENTSCH PARTNER therefore created a team of specialists with backgrounds in regulation, taxation, incorporation, intellectual property, technology, and data protection.

Patent Box:
Matthias Städeli and Alfred Köpf are the helmsmen of the firm’s patent box team. Switzerland’s 2020 tax reform allows cantons to become more tax-competitive and innovation-friendly by giving companies tax breaks on income from IP rights. The idea is to promote research and development and incentivise innovative value creation. RENTSCH PARTNER is exclusive patent partner of Switzerland’s leading big four audit and advisory companies. In this unique partnership, RENTSCH PARTNER helps to make the most of the opportunities within the new legal framework of Switzerland’s tax regime.
