A brief look in the here and now - The TSWpat! of the present

Merger

After seven years of a shared journey as part of the TSWpat! Group, but still operating as independent companies, we have decided within the context of our 75th anniversary to simplify and strengthen the group structure. All the companies in the TSWpat! Group have been merged into the company with the longest history, Troesch Scheidegger Werner AG. Our ongoing collaborative work is now also represented legally.

Leadership team

Besides the formal changes, from which we expect a more transparent communication structure and a simplification of the internal processes, we are very pleased to simultaneously announce a further important change:

Since January 2020, the leadership team of the TSWpat! Group has been extended by three new partners, all of them being well-known and already established in the TSWpat! group, namely:

  • Brian Aeschlimann, M Law University of Zurich / LL.M. Duke University, Attorney at Law, Trademark Attorney VSP
  • Alexandra Dieter, M.Sc. Chemie TU München / Dr. rer. nat. TU München, European Patent Attorney
  • Thomas Speck, Dipl. Phys. ETH, European Patent Attorney
(from left to right Thomas Speck, Dr. Alexandra Dieter, Brian Aeschlimann)

With the present extension and rejuvenation of the team of partners, we are able to pursue the continuous and long-term support of our clients in the field of intellectual property rights in a sustainable way.
