Utility models

HGF’s German attorneys are experts when it comes to advising on German utility models, a national intellectual property right that can be independent of patents.

Utility models protect new, technical inventions within the Federal Republic of Germany. Unlike a patent, utility models are not examined and are an inexpensive intellectual property right that can be processed quickly to obtain swift protection when required.

HGF’s attorneys based in Germany are highly experienced in incorporating utility models into overall IP strategies to form a critical element of protection.
