Witte Weller & Partner – Germany 2019
The patent attorneys at this Stuttgart IP boutique are frequently active in proceedings. On behalf of Diazyme, for example, the team managed to destroy two patents belonging to competitor Brahms in the dispute with Diasys. The patents protected in-vitro test kits for diagnosing blood poisoning. In addition, competitors praise the team for its prosecution work. The patent attorneys advise a good deal more international corporates than other outfits in the region. The core client list includes heavyweights such as Philips and Kawasaki.
