*THE EUIPO TOP LIST
What does the EUIPO top list exactly mean, at the top of this page? The European Intellectual Property Office is the trademark and design patent agency of the EU. Furthermore they publish a top list quarter yearly. The list contains the names of EUIPO representatives who have clearly filed the most trademarks, design applications and oppositions. For this reason, please have a look at the relevant page from Q4 2019 here. In the same way, to access all lists historically, please visit the EUIPO website. Consequently we hope you see it as an indicator that as Hungarian law firm we deal with European trademark and European design patent issues on a daily basis. Although the Hungarian Intellectual Property Office does not publish a top list like that, we also deal with Hungarian trademarks.
HUNGARIAN IP LAW FIRM VS. HUNGARIAN PATENT ATTORNEY
What is the difference? A patent attorney is someone who has a chemistry, engineering, etc. background, understands technical inventions. Patent attorneys also have a long qualification to master the art of patent claims and procedures. As a result patent attorneys possess a specialized legal skill. Some of them stick to patent filing, some of them obtain a legal qualification additionally. Since patent attorneys normally do not have a legal qualification in civil claims, they usually team up with an IP lawyer. For it comes to a patent infringements. To clarify, in the intellectual property law field our services are limited. We work with clients on trademark, design patents, utility models. However, we do not file Hungarian patents, as we lack in-house patent attorneys. However, we cooperate with off-counsel patent attorneys in litigation cases, since it is a good combination of technical and procedural skills. For these reasons we consider ourselves to be a niche Hungarian IP law firm.
