History of the Firm

Our patent attorney firm was founded in 1964 by Otmar Dittmann and Dr. Alexander von Füner; shortly thereafter Karl-Ludwig Schiff joined as the third partner.

The working team was increased when Peter Strehl and Dr. Ursula Schübel-Hopf as well as Dieter Ebbinghaus joined in 1970 and 1972, respectively. Since Alexander von Füner and Dieter Ebbinghaus had excellent command of the Russian language, they soon started to focus a part of their work on providing services concerning protection of industrial property in what was then the Soviet Union.

In 1977 Dr. Dieter Finck joined the working team.

From 1980 on, the partnership of Dieter Ebbinghaus, Dieter Finck and Alexander von Füner started doing business under the name "von Füner Ebbinghaus Finck".

The collapse of the Soviet Union required a massive amount of effort to safeguard the intellectual property of the clients for which the firm acted as intermediate representative not only in Russia but also in the other successor states for the Soviet Union which had emerged by then.

This situation gave rise to the foundation of a cooperation office in Moscow in 1993 and another one in Kiev shortly thereafter. These offices did business under the name of EUROMARKPAT from the very beginning. In time, further cooperation offices were established in Albania, Uzbekistan, Estonia, Mongolia and Kosovo

After completing their training as patent attorney candidates in the firm, Christian Hano and Dr. Nicolai von Füner became partners in 1994 and 1999, respectively.

At the end of the year 2002 Alexander von Füner and Dieter Ebbinghaus retired, and Dieter Finck did likewise at the end of the year 2007.

In January 2008 we welcomed Dr. Sergej Sloboshanin as a partner of the firm.
