History

The IP law firm was founded in Linz by the engineer Carl Maurer in 1949. In 1956 the Graduate Engineer Gerhard Hübscher became a partner, with the practice relocating to Spittelwiese 7. Gerhard Hübscher continued to run the practice alone following the death of Carl Maurer. His sons Heiner Hübscher and Helmut Hübscher, both Graduate Engineers, joined the practice as trainee patent attorneys in 1969 and 1970. Helmut Hübscher took over management of the practice upon the retirement of Gerhard Hübscher and is still operating it today. Winfried Hellmich (Grad. Engin.) joined the patent attorney team in 2007, having successfully passed the European as well as the Austrian patent attorney examinations. Gerd Hübscher has strengthened the patent attorney practice as a patent attorney candidate since 2010. In 2013, the IP law firm expanded and moved to a new office at Spittelwiese 4.

Our Mission

From a corporate viewpoint, industrial protection and associated areas of law are strategic tools that enable a business to secure technical innovations, designs and brands and render them marketable as the need arises. Building up a portfolio of property rights with an eye to the future not only enables a company to consolidate its long-term position against the competition, but also constitutes a central corporate value in today's knowledge and information society. 

For this reason, we believe our most important tasks are to act as a central point of contact for consulting and all other matters relating to the protection of industrial property, and to offer the most effective support in the forward-looking and responsible utilisation of relevant ancillary copyrights.

Career

We represent and advise reputable national and international clients and colleagues in all fields of industrial property protection, and especially the core area of patent law. To provide our clientele with the best possible support, we are constantly on the lookout for dedicated individuals with a passion for both technical and legal matters. Given the international nature of our practice, excellent language skills in German and English (both written and spoken) are essential, a third language (ideally French) would be considered an advantage.

Successful candidates can look forward to a modern, future-focused working environment in the heart of Linz, a challenging range of tasks spanning all fields of industrial property protection, thorough training and good business prospects.
