JUVE Comment

As in previous years, this patent attorney firm, which is respected for its prosecution work, shifted up a gear. The patent attorneys are not only filing more patents for regular clients, they also gained a number of new clients, incl. Vorwerk. The firm saw most growth, however, in work for Asian companies. MH&P is also very active in IP-related due diligence work, e.g. in connection with the Molecular Partners IPO and the Sorbion sale to BSN Medical. The patent attorneys frequently appear in infringement proceedings.
