This respected patent attorney firm enjoyed strong visibility across Germany, thanks to Keussen – incl. for litigation on the patent attorney side. The firm often looks after large global portfolios for its very loyal Mittelstand client base, incl. enforcement before the courts, as well as the large portfolios of some corporates and international companies, e.g. Sanyo and NEC, across Europe. Though GDM only conducts a small number of infringement proceedings, it mostly does so with its own litigator, unlike its north German competitors.
