firm overview

The history of our office goes back to the foundation of the Patent Office of Mr. Dipl.-Phys. Theodor Koch in Bonn in 1976, who is admitted to practice as patent attorney at the German Patent and Trademark Office since June 30, 1976 as well as at the European Trademark Office since its foundation in 1977. He is also representative at the Trademarks and Designs Registration Office in Alicante, which registers trademarks and also designs that are valid in all 28 countries of the European Union, and representative at the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) in Geneva, where international industrial property rights are registered so that worldwide protection is possible.

After his studies at the Institute for Applied Physics and the Institute for Theoretical Physics and his Physics Degree (Dipl.-Phys.) at the University of Bonn Mr. Koch completed his vocational education as Patent Attorney at the German Patent and Trade Mark Office, the Federal Patent Court und the County Court Munich (higher first instance court) und and at notable patent and law offices in Düsseldorf and the industrial Ruhr area where he started his professional career as Patent Attorney after his admission.

After his admission within the German Patent and Trade Marks Office Patent Attorney Koch also received his admission within the European Patent Office and the Office for Harmonization in the Internal Market (Trade Marks and Designs).

Our Patent and Law Office was established in 1981 in cooperation with the Attorneys-at-Law Dr. Heinrich Barth & Heinrich Barth jr..

As a result of his tenure as personal assistant to Chancelor Dr. Konrad Adenauer in the Federal Chancellery, later as Deputy Minister in the Federal Ministry of Family Affairs and of his close relations to the Federal Ministry of Economics and in particular of his subsequent job as a business consultant for Japanese companies with international operations Dr. Heinrich Barth was an expert in the field of corporate law.

After moving the office address from Oxfordstraße 20-22, Bonn, to Colmantstraße 20, Bonn, the current address of our office is now near the government district at Reuterstraße 187, Bonn, in the building formerly known as “ARAG-Haus” (insurance company).

After the death of Dr. Heinrich Barth the Attorney-at-Law Mrs. Beatrix Hüller joined our office as cooperation partner, who is admitted to practice before all district courts and higher first instance courts as well as all higher regional courts and the First Instance Court of Justice of the European Union and the European Court of Justice.

Mrs. Beatrix Hüller was admitted to the bar in 1997. After a long term practice in the insurance business, at last as company lawyer in the “central legal department”, she runs her own law office as Attorney-at-Law since February 2004. Some years ago Mrs. Hüller moved her law office to our building at Reuterstraße 187. www.ra-hueller.de
