ZBM’s patent practice is driven by an unflinching commitment to quality. Its attorneys believe that something is not worth doing if it cannot be done well. Whether conducting searches, drafting European and Patent Cooperation Treaty (PCT) applications or prosecuting them through national phases in Europe or Spain, their work products are cross-checked and of consistently high quality.
The firm has an excellent team with scientific backgrounds in all areas of technology, from life sciences to chemistry, electronics, software and mechanics. They acquire an in-depth understanding of clients’ technologies and endeavour to provide tailored advice taking into account their individual business needs.
The BConnect unit created a few years ago offers services in technology transfer and innovation, such as licensees search, support in ongoing licensing negotiations, contract draft (consortium agreements, confidentiality, material transfer agreement (MTA), licensing), or support and collaboration in R&D projects. It has become a valuable resource for clients seeking to exploit their IP assets and generate value.
ZBM’s trademark work is growing in volume and covers all aspects of IP protection, including prosecution, oppositions and negotiations (with particular focus on Europe, Latin America and China). The firm also handles designs, trade secrets and domain names.

A trademark can be a word, symbol or device (or a combination of them) used exclusively to identify the source of products and distinguish them from other goods. Examples include Nikon cameras and Chevrolet automobiles. Service marks are similar to trademarks, except that they identify a business rather than a product or service.
