Harmsen Utescher
International law firm Hamburg


The specialists for protection of intellectual property.

Harmsen Utescher is active internationally for national and foreign clients. From the first hour of our existence, the protection of intellectual property has been our specialty. Rudolf Ernst Utescher, who founded his patent agency in Hamburg in 1895, laid the cornerstone for today's law firm.

Competence is the key to our clients' success.

Many large and mid-sized companies, both domestically and abroad, put their trust in our experience. It goes hand in hand with our passion to achieve the best for our clients through innovative and creative solutions.

We cover all areas of intellectual property protection. Our attorneys-at-law are experts in trademark law, unfair competition law, copyright and design law, patent law, pharmaceutical and food law, as well as antitrust law, and all related legal fields.

Well advised in every respect.

It does not matter whether our clients come from traditional industries or call upon our competence in relatively new areas such as IT, software, biotech, or telecommunications. We will work for them comprehensively, either as advisor or in court.
