Meisser & Partners
Traditionally, trademark agents concentrate on the task of filing and administrating trademark registrations, whereas attorneys at law are employed for litigations and contracts. The law firm Meisser & Partners was established in 1979 with the idea to offer these complementary services from one source. It has since then built up  worldwide experience and know-how in the fields of trademark registration, availability searches, trademark watching, intellectual property disputes, domain name conflicts and licensing. Its reputation is reflected by its listing in the "Guide to the World's Leading Trade Mark Law Practitioners", edited by the Legal Media Group which in 2005 nominated J. David Meisser to be among the leading 25 trademark practitioners in the world. In addition, we are proud to be among the few Swiss trademarks offices regularly listed in the trademarks section of "Who's Who Legal", The International Who's Who of Business Lawyers, since its first edition in 2002.
