The patent law firm CANZLER & BERGMEIER was founded in 1996 by Rolf Canzler and Werner Bergmeier in Ingolstadt, just 80 km from Munich, the capital of intellectual property law in Europe. It has grown into a thriving firm with several patent attorneys and patent engineers backed by an expert support staff, including several specially trained patent attorney’s assistants taking care of the trouble-free execution of day-to-day work. Our firm takes pride in its efficient handling of the largest projects in Germany, Europe, and overseas.
Prior to founding the firm, Rolf Canzler and Werner Bergmeier each headed a patent department and served as executives in a large industrial company for many years; their corporate roots lend CANZLER & BERGMEIER unique insight into how real businesses work. This perspective, along with our firm’s expertise and experience in all aspects of patent and trademark law, distinguish it from other patent law firms and make it a capable partner for companies of any size.
It is the firm’s goal to provide comprehensive, individual advice and support as it helps its clients to tailor effective and commercially sound patent strategies as well as effective patent management policies.
CANZLER & BERGMEIER practices before the German Patent and Trademark Office, the Federal Patent Court, the European Patent Office (all located in Munich), the German High Court, and the Office for Harmonization in the Internal Market in Alicante, Spain.
CANZLER & BERGMEIER cooperates with selected, experienced intellectual property experts in more than 50 countries, including patent attorneys in Western and Eastern Europe, the United States, Japan, China, Korea, and India.
