Hungarian IP law firm vs. patent attorney in Hungary, 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 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.

About the fish
The logo depicts a live fish and is actually dedicated to the love of fish which means to us freedom, cleanness and simplicity. Our logo is not related to any belief or religion and it is copyright protected. The idea of the logo comes from Ákos Süle who loves fish and fish-related works of art. A long time ago Ákos’s grandfather used to go fishing to the Lake Balaton regularly, so this may be in the family. As a consequence the fish found its way to our law firm as well. It is a talking point with clients; some love it, some are more quizzical. However most of all it has brought a little bit of fun into our weekdays and let’s not forget that some fishes swim against the current. Of course sometimes it is better to go with the flow. We always consider both options professionally.

Yes, most of the legal services can be rendered online, using video meeting software. The video call must be recorded and kept by the Hungarian attorney. The client has to show his/her identification document, tilt it so holograms are visible and also repeat / say out loud the data recorded in his/her ID. Once the client has been identified, he / she can sign the documents during the video call and post it to the lawyer. Another option is to sign the documents, post them to the Hungarian lawyer and once the documents have been received, acknowledge via video call that the client has signed them.
