JUVE Comment

This respected patent attorney firm in Stuttgart enjoys deep roots among Mittelstand clients in the central Neckar region. The team is made up purely of patent attorneys and often advises first-class regular clients, such as cleaning appliance manufacturer Alfred Kärcher, primarily on patent filing and the arising disputes. These are then conducted with external litigators. In the long term, if the firm’s long-standing clients with international filing strategies are pulled before the UPC in disputes, it is questionable whether or not they will remain loyal to their patent attorneys. However, the tried-and-tested cooperation between the patent attorneys and renowned firms in Düsseldorf for litigation suggests that they would.
