Da Vinci Partners LLC is a Swiss-based international patent firm specializing in US patent, trademark
and copyright law as well as European and international registration of such rights. Da Vinci Partners
is among the first intellectual property firms to be established in Europe with a primary focus on US
intellectual property law. Nevertheless, we are also one of the first firms to be duly registered with
the Swiss patent office to prepare, file and prosecute Swiss patent applications and have a licensed European
patent legal representative to handle direct European filings. Consequently, although US intellectual property
is our speciality, local work is an important part of our daily practice.
Da Vinci Partners represents clients from start-up ventures to large corporations in a wide range of intellectual property matters involving patent, trademark and copyright procurement, litigation and licensing, as well as computer law, with particular emphasis on software patenting and licensing.
We are competent to help clients procure patent protection in a wide variety of technical fields, including computer software, mechanics, electronics, medical devices chemistry and biotechnologies.

Being US patent attorneys operating through a Swiss-based firm, we're able to represent Swiss and US clients (companies and individuals) without limitation. We can represent clients from any country before the US Patent and Trademark Office.
It's most often the case that the battle for the global market of a product or service is won or lost in the United States. If a company's US intellectual property is lost, the war for the global market is all but over. Da Vinci Partners is thus uniquely positioned in Europe to provide this US focused, face-to-face advice to a company's management, at a place and time of their convenience.
Beyond this US focus, the firm is well positioned to provide clients with global strategic counsel regarding Swiss, European, and other international patent, trademarks and copyrights, as well as litigation management in just about any jurisdiction. And if the client prefers, the firm can manage a client's entire Intellectual Property docket as well.
And for our non-Swiss or non-US clients who care to take advantages of the tax benefits of a Swiss holding company to hold and license their intellectual property assets, we can represent this company before all competent international patent and trademark authorities.
For those clients with an established relationship with a local patent agency, Da Vinci Partners can complement the agency's services by working with the local practitioner to manage the client's US intellectual property docket, thus helping ensure that their client's most strategically important intellectual property asset, their US patents, trademarks or copyrights, are properly attended to, and that the client's position with respect to international rights is strong.
If you've received a warning letter from a competitor, alleging that you infringe a US patent, we can intervene to help you assess the risk. We can study the facts and the law, and render an opinion that helps you show that you've made a good faith effort to avoid infringement or to determine that the patent asserted against you is invalid. The formal, written opinion of a US patent attorney-at-law is required to help you avoid triple damages and having to pay the legal fees of the other side.
