Our firm serves a broad range of clients from large multinational companies to initial startups. SIMAJ is dedicated to providing individualized attention and care to all clients. We believe that the competence of a firm does not lie on the personal capabilities of the staff but also their responsiveness to client queiries for providing prompt, complete and continuous service.

In addition to protecting intellectual property rights, SIMAJ also offers strategic advice for the purpose of securing an increased competitive force for its clients and managing their IP portfolio.

Most of our technical and legal staff has a collective expertise in various IP matters and we believe that this experience is an important prerequisite for understanding the clients’ concerns and to provide a creative and flexible point of view. In accordance with this sensitivity, the clients’ interests are safely guarded and the risks are avoided.

Membership association and participation is of considerable importance for us and therefore the partners of the firm are members and regular participants of the international associations for intellectual property such as INTA, ECTA, EPI, MARQUES, LES, AIPPI, GRUR and AIPLA.
