DLA Piper – Germany 2016
Despite some of its members, incl. partners, going to competitors in the past two years, the respected litigation team around Gampp managed to regain its strength and emerge from the shadows. This was thanks to its growing visibility on the side of defendants in mobile communications suits against NPEs, e.g. for Box and Versicherungskammer Bayern. The team advises on a broad technical palette and, if it grows further, is ready to play a central role within DLA’s well-positioned European patents group.
