HOGERTZ is a Berlin-based boutique law firm specializing in representing and advising foreign and domestic companies as well as individuals in all aspects of media and entertainment, copyright, information technology, data protection, trademark, and unfair competition law.
We assist our clients in developing new business ideas, products and services, advertising campaigns, trademark and distribution strategies with practical solutions derived from excellent legal skills. Typically, we are involved at a very early stage of the development process, which enables our clients to anticipate problems and conflicts from the outset and to weigh up the associated risks.
We offer a full range of services to help our clients protect their intellectual and industrial property and avoid infringement of third parties’ rights. To this end, we specifically analyze potential conflicts and handle trademark and design registrations with national and international patent and trademark offices.
Furthermore, we draft and negotiate all necessary contracts for our clients, such as general terms and conditions as well as agency, cooperation, development, license and distribution agreements. A special focus is on the structuring, drafting, negotiation and review of contracts for the financing, acquisition, production, exploitation and distribution of media.
Where appropriate, we enforce and defend our clients’ rights in legal disputes. Should legal proceedings become necessary, our clients can rely on our litigation experience and steadfastness.
Our clients include companies and individuals from the entire media industry as well as pharmaceutical, fashion, cosmetic and consumer goods companies.
