Firm Profile

After 25 years of patent and licensing activities in multinational companies, Dr. Kurt F. Büchel founded our patent firm in 1979 as "Patentbüro Dr. Büchel", which grew into "Patentbüro Büchel & Partner AG" in 1995 with Dr. Susanne Kaminski as a full partner. Later the firm was re-named and its legal form was changed to "Büchel, Kaminski & Partner Patentanwälte Est."

After the retirement of Dr. Büchel from active business in 2003 the firm was run by Dr. Kaminski under the previous brand. Since 2008, Dr. Dr. Bernd-G. Harmann leads the firm, which in August 2009 was re-named to KAMINSKI HARMANN PATENTANWÄLTE EST. In March/April 2012, the place of business was relocated to the A-DOME, Landstrasse 124, Vaduz, and legal form was changed to stock corporation (AG). In January 2018, our Swiss subsidiary company based in St. Gallen was founded.

We represent clients in all technical and legal fields relating to intellectual property before the European Patent Office and the Swiss Federal Institute of Intellectual Property, the World Intellectual Property Office in Geneva, the Office of Economic Affairs in Liechtenstein and the German Patent and Trademark Office. Since we are very conveniently situated at a geographic intersection of Germany, Switzerland and Austria, in the beautiful Rhine valley, our office has international activities.
