Who Are We?
Gernet Althaus IP AG – GA-IP is an independent patent and trademark law firm.
You invent, we protect – to safeguard and enhance your competitiveness.
Protect your innovation against imitation! Protection enables you to set yourself apart from your competition and prohibit others from using your intellectual property. It also stops competitors protecting your innovation for themselves. Your protected innovations and creations are a tradeable asset which you can sell or licence.
Our team of highly qualified specialists have a wealth of expertise and specialist knowledge both of intellectual property and in various technical fields, most notably mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, chemistry and biotechnology. We draw on these skills to help innovative businesses and individual inventors develop effective strategies for protecting their intellectual property, anywhere in the world.
IPS Irsch Group.
We have proven ourselves in both the national and international market over many years and have advanced our patent law firms through organic growth. The individuality of the separate companies stands front and center, while their solidarity with each other gives additional strength to the whole. We will use this to the benefit of our clients. We firmly believe that a regional alignment based on established roots in the local area meets the growing needs of our clients.
The personality and integrity of our staff are valued highly in our companies alongside our requirements of their specialist qualifications. We assign great importance to an inspiring and appreciative staff and corporate culture and have, as a group, committed ourselves to acting sustainably and responsibly. In doing so we have laid the foundation for a relationship with our clients that is based on trust and cooperation.
The outstanding standard of our infrastructures, including the IT system that was announced back in 2013 and has since been fully integrated, are central factors in our ability to provide high quality services. That has put us well ahead of many of our competitors, allowing us to deliver consistent improvements in efficiency and significant advancements in data security. What is more, this foundation has enabled us to better prepare for unforeseen events such as the coronavirus pandemic and to overcome the additional challenges while maintaining a consistently high standard.
Flexibility and Strength
As a corproate group, we can also enhance security and flexibility and tap into the considerable synergy potential available through the across-the-board use of services and resources. The fact that our patent attorneys come from a range of natural scientific specialisms such as physics, chemistry, biology and actively engage in exchanges about areas of interest beyond their specialist fields additionally enhances the benefits for our clients.
Focus on Customers‘ Benefit
It is our belief that a personal relationship with clients, cooperation with the same contacts over many years, and ethically responsible and sustainable actions in the market will become even more important in the future. We share these values and will preserve them for the benefit of our clients and our companies.

To assert our trademarks, which include ALUCOBOND®, DIBOND® and FOREX®, we needed a partner with strategic vision who could get things done, and we found that in Gernet Althaus IP AG. Together, we win the majority of oppositions.
