Epping Hermann Fischer – Germany 2015
This Munich firm, which is respected for patents, is one of Germany’s strongest patent filers. Because of the exceptionally large number of German and European patents filed and the sheer number of fee earners – which was added to by two patent attorneys – EHF is most visible in electronics and IT patents, where it often represents international clients. The most notable names include Fujitsu, Huawei and a number of former Siemens subsidiaries. The firm only occasionally litigates for its regular clients.
