Who we are
HOYNG ROKH MONEGIER is a specialised European intellectual property law boutique created in 2015 when the well-established top tier IP firms Hoyng Monegier and Reimann Osterrieth Köhler Haft (ROKH) decided to join forces. In 2019, we teamed up with French patent litigation boutique, Véron & Associés. Today HOYNG ROKH MONEGIER gathers more than 100 passionate IP professionals with offices in Amsterdam, Brussels, Düsseldorf, Lyon, Madrid, Mannheim (branch office), Munich and Paris.
In all of its locations HOYNG ROKH MONEGIER services the needs of clients in the field of intellectual property law, including patents and trade secrets, trademarks, copyrights and design rights, as well as in related fields, such as pharmaceutical regulatory law, unfair competition, media and advertising law and all IP related contracts.
In patent law, the focus of HOYNG ROKH MONEGIER lies in particular on the technical areas of electronics and telecommunications, pharmaceuticals and biotechnology, automotive and optics, with decades of proven expertise. We also serve all other technical fields, including mechanics, electrical engineering and chemicals. With its highly international orientation, enlarged European presence and increased strength and depth, we are also well placed for representing clients before the future Unified Patent Court (UPC). The Amsterdam office further provides patent prosecution services.
In addition, in the fields of trademark, copyright, design right law, HOYNG ROKH MONEGIER offers a complete range of services relating to the enforcement, exploitation, assessment and protection of these rights, always at the forefront of new developments. Given the full harmonization of European trademark and design right law we are ideally placed to serve our clients’ needs. HOYNG ROKH MONEGIER advises and represents its clients across a broad range of sectors including food & beverages, pharmaceuticals, industrial design, media, entertainment & publishing.
We represent our clients before all relevant national and European IP courts and authorities as well as arbitrating their IP disputes. We also act for them as experienced negotiators and assist in drafting licensing, R&D and technology transfer agreements.
