Harmsen Utescher – Germany 2017
The respected patents team of this IP firm has an established place in north Germany and Düsseldorf’s patent courts for patent litigation. Activities are based on long-standing connections to clients from the healthcare and food sectors. But HU is hired ever more often by companies from other sectors, like the booming packaging industry. One example is the work for Panther Packaging. The lawyers are also called on by external patent attorneys for litigation. HU operates a small filing practice for regular clients.
