JUVE Comment

Not only is this highly recommended firm one of the most visible prosecution practices outside of Munich, it is also one of the foremost names for litigation in mobile communications suits on the patent attorney side. Here, M&N appears in almost all of today’s high-profile series of proceedings. M&N counts on its good ties to some law firms, such as ROKH and Hogan Lovells, in view of the UPC system and despite ROKH’s merger with Hoyng Monegier. At the same time, M&N banks on the outstanding litigation expertise of individual lawyers like Baumgärtel and on its stand-alone patent attorney work, as well as close direct connections with technology corporates, such as Infineon or a Korean conglomerate. But the firm could strengthen its independent position with more pharmaceuticals proceedings.
