The law firm

Berlin Panorama

The history

The firm was established in 1992 by Christoph Kayser in Hamm/Westfalia on a so-called greenfield site. The firm was well-known in the region on account of its teaching activity stretching over some 10 years at the Gesamthochschule Paderborn, Soest Department. Following continuous growth and some spectacular trademark proceedings, the firm merged with the Munich-based patent law firm of Steffen Möbus. The good relationship with Möbus still exists today, albeit in a purely cooperative capacity.

Due to his Berlin roots Christoph Kayser moved the location of the firm from Hamm to Berlin in 2002. When Dr. Werner Cobet joined the firm he again re-opened the firm’s location in Hamm. The firm’s name then changed to Kayser & Cobet.

The founders

Christoph Kayser

Whilst studying geology and geophysics at the Technical University of Clausthal and RWTH Aachen, Christoph Kayser worked on geophysical and geochemical projects on the prospecting and exploration of organic deposits and after obtaining his degree, moved to the Institute for Oil Research at the Technical University of Clausthal and was involved in a  research project to develop a model for CO2-flooding of oil deposits with the aim of improving the yield.

After studying the legal protection of industrial property rights and training to become a patent attorney in fairly large patent attorney’s office as well as at the German Patent and Trademark Office and the Federal Patent Court in Munich, Christoph Kayser founded the KAYSER patent attorney’s office in Hamm in 1992 and in 1998 this expanded to become KAYSER & MÖBUS with offices in Hamm  and Munich. Since 2002 the firm has also had an office in Berlin. Together with Dr. Werner Cobet, Christoph Kayser founded KAYSER & COBET patent attorneys with offices in Berlin and Hamm. Patent attorney Möbus still has connections with the Munich office as a cooperating partner.

Since 1994, Christoph Kayser has been an active member of Rotary International, presently at the Berlin-Humboldt Rotary Club.

As well as looking after clients in the fields of filter technology, semiconductor technology, mechanical engineering and automation technology, Christoph Kayser specialises in the fields of alternative energies, geothermics, catalytic processing technology, fibre optics and medical engineering. Another focus of their work lies in the field of national and international trademarks and the enforcement of property rights and licences.

Christoph Kayser looks after research institutions, national and international companies in all areas of the legal protection of industrial property rights. An important goal of his consulting work is aimed at developing patent and trademark strategies with his clients in good time so as to optimise the protective effects of their patents and trademarks at home and abroad.

Dr. Werner Cobet

After qualifying as a dispensing chemist, Dr. Werner Cobet developed his own compositions for solid and semi-solid pharmaceutical forms in the German Armed Forces and in 1992 obtained a Doctorate in protein transport through cell membranes and genetic development of translocation intermediates at the Institute for Physiological Chemistry, Cell Biology and Physical Biochemistry at the Ludwig Maximilian University Munich and was then Project Manager for Oncology and Respiratory Therapeutics in Medicinal Product Licensing at Fujisawa/Klinge in Munich.

After studying the legal protection of industrial property rights and training to become a patent attorney at the German Patent and Trademark Office and the Federal Patent Court in Munich, together with Christoph Kayser, he founded KAYSER & COBET patent attorneys with offices in Berlin and Hamm.
As well as looking after clients in the fields of the automobile industry, computer and semiconductor technology, mechanical engineering and automation technology,
Dr. Cobet specialises in chemistry, pharmacy, biochemistry/biotechnology, medical engineering and food technology as well as national and international trademark law.

Dr. Cobet looks after national and international companies in all areas of the legal protection of industrial property rights. An important aspect of the consultation work of Dr. Werner Cobet is the development of patent and trademark strategies for the efficient and economical protection of new developments, securing products which have been introduced and averting the risk of an infringement in the property rights of third parties.

PATENTSTRATEGY

Inventions are frequently filed for patents or utility models without any clear plan. In most cases, there is no precise idea of what is to be accomplished with the property right.
Ownership
The desire for protection originates in many cases from a very basic fear of appropriation by third parties without any clarity as to how such an appropriation of intellectual property can in fact take place.
Blocking
In many cases, the intention is to occupy a niche in the market with a patent or utility model without any clear idea as to the size of this niche in the market in terms of patent law, and whether blocking by merely one property right is actually possible. A patent family is required for actual blocking.
License
In many cases, it is not possible to use one’s own inventions. This applies to individual inventors and also to companies who cannot cover all the areas of application of their inventions. It is then appropriate to licence the entire invention or at least individual applications to achieve additional income.
Advertising
Regardless of its use as a prohibitive right, a property right can also have a valuable external effect for the owner. The registers at the relevant offices are accessible to the public. Not only actively advertising the property rights but also examining the register gives third parties an impression of the innovative capacity of a company.
Value
Patents and utility models are independently tradable values. In the event of a company being sold, preparation of succession or impending insolvency, property rights can be evaluated and put on the balance sheet depending on the evaluation.

TRADEMARKSTRATEGY

Trademarks are frequently identified and filed purely intuitively. In most cases there is no precise idea of the scope of protection, enforceability and usage requirement.
Ownership
The desire for protection originates in many cases from a very basic fear of appropriation by third parties without any clear idea as to how such an appropriation of intellectual property can in fact take place.
Quality
Trademark products and trademark services stand for quality and stand out from no-name products.
Re-identifiability
Trademarks of products in a product family should be re-identifiably assignable to a manufacturer (for example: IKEA, automobile industry).
License
In many cases it is not possible to use one’s own trademarks. In order to prevent the trademark from lapsing due to non-usage it is appropriate to license the trademark.
Advertising
Regardless of its use as a prohibitive right, a property right can also have a valuable external effect for the owner. The registers at the relevant offices are accessible to the public. Trademarks stand for quality (see above).
Value
Trademarks are independently tradable values. In the event of a company being sold, preparation of succession or impending insolvency, trademarks can be evaluated.
