JUVE Comment

This respected, mixed IP firm traditionally enjoys a dominant position in the patent attorney scene in the Rhein-Main region, thanks to its strong position in mechanics patents. The prosecution work in chemicals patents is also held in high regard. The patent attorneys litigate for a number of Mittelstand companies and some corporates, e.g. Sanofi-Aventis. K&S is successfully building up its own litigation practice with lawyers, with the UPC in mind.
