Ter Meer Steinmeister & Partner – Germany 2019
This patent attorney firm has a broad technical spectrum, but attracts attention mainly for Aechter’s and Hollatz’s litigation for pharma manufacturers. Recently work for generics manufacturers predominated. For example, Ter Meer was active for Accord, Hexal and 1A Pharma in numerous pharma cases. This is thanks to the excellent ties to lawyer firms such as Taylor Wessing. Although the firm filed many patents for LG, the patent attorneys are still not on the radar for mobile communication suits. Ter Meer has a broad prosecution practice outside of pharma and mobile communication patents.
