Wuesthoff & Wuesthoff

Supplementary Protection Certificates

Typically Supplementary Protection Certificates ("SPCs") are a complex legal matter that is in constant flux (e.g. ECJ decision C-527/17 on medical devices, and EU 'export manufacturing waiver').

As originator of pharmaceuticals, biopharmaceuticals or plant protection products, a competent and experienced partner can assist you in anticipating and addressing this challenge. Wuesthoff & Wuesthoff handles examination proceedings before the German Patent and Trademark Office (DPMA) and – in cooperation with renowned foreign law firms – before other national offices both in the European Union and worldwide, especially the USA and Japan.

Alternatively, as a generic company we advise you, prepare legal opinions on validity or infringement of SPCs or represent you nullity proceedings before the Federal Patent Court and the Federal Court of Justice.


Don’t hesitate to contact us – we will be pleased to advise you.
