Barbara F. Gehri
MLaw UZH, Trademark Attorney VSP, Of Counsel
Shortly after completing my law studies at the University of Zurich, I became interested in intellectual property law with a special focus on trademark law. Since 1997, I have been continuously expanding my expertise in this area as well as in related fields of law.
My core competencies include: Advising on trademark and design protection, drafting trademark registration and IP strategies, trademark searches and monitoring, registration of IP rights, managing IP portfolios, handling official objections and refusals, opposition proceedings, reviewing and handling IP infringements, settlement negotiations, drafting contracts, settlement agreements, IP transfers, IP transactions, IP due diligence investigations, domain name disputes (incl. UDRP proceedings) and customs relief measures.
Through my many years of practice, I have solid experience in representing clients before the Swiss Federal Institute of Intellectual Property (IPI), the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) and the Swiss Federal Administrative Court (FAC). For advice and representation before foreign trademark offices and courts, I work with a well-established and proven network of correspondent attorneys.
I am pleased to be working with RIGLING IP AG as Of Counsel since 2021.
