This Vienna IP firm is well positioned in patents as well as trademarks, unfair competition and copyrights. The international, often Mittelstand, client base frequently entrusts the firm with all-round IP. The team boasts a wealth of experience and activity in contract matters.
Following the departure of its second founding partner in 2019, the firm is investing in furthering young legal talent for the long term. This is a promising strategy: the headcount is not noticeably small compared to competitors, but the team does lack visible lawyers around the name partner. With the hiring of an additional lawyer and several trainee lawyers, the firm has laid the foundations and now needs to build on these consistently.
