JUVE Patent

df-mp Dörries Frank-Molnia & Pohlman – Germany 2016

JUVE Comment

A respected patent attorney firm which opts for extensive litigation work, in addition to renowned prosecution activity. The patent attorneys are known for their wealth of litigation experience. Molnia was very visible for Unwired Planet again in one of Germany’s major NPE suits. The pharmaceuticals/biotech team was also extremely busy in litigation, e.g. in opposition suits for Teva. But by no means does df-mp focus on NPEs and generics companies alone, as shown by extensive litigation for Biogen, Qiagen, Lonza and Toll Collect. With an approach geared clearly towards litigation, df-mp should make a good partner for European firms for the possible UPC launch.
