Lawyer's and Patent Attorneys' Office
Weber & Seidel



We offer extensive advice on all aspects of the protection of industrial property and act as legal representatives in such matters. This includes not only matters concerning applications for protective rights and the assertion thereof but also measures for counteracting claims of third parties.

We check small and medium-sized businesses and business starters to ascertain whether they might be eligible for German federal funding . The new federal funding programme WIPANO is running since 01.01.2016 (until 31.12.2019) as the successor to the SIGNO programme. Business starters that are not eligible for funding are charged a reduced hourly rate for their first application for a patent or utitility patent.

We supplement our regular office activities by the provision of free councelling for inventors at the Rhein-Neckar Chamber of Industry and Commerce (IHK)and at the Mannheim Chamber of Handicrafts (IWK).

We lecture at both chambers on technical protective rights and trademarks.

Since May 2016 we are also cooperation partner in a research project of the University Heidelberg concerning biopatenting, the project being sponsored by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF).
