JUVE Patent

Keil & Schaafhausen – Germany 2017

JUVE Comment

A respected patent attorney firm in Frankfurt with a traditional strength in filing engineering and mechanics patents, as well as in chemicals and chemical engineering. The patent attorneys also conduct litigation for regular clients from the German Mittelstand and international corporates with an experienced lawyer. But this has not raised K&S’ visibility as a litigation specialist.
