Prüfer & Partner – Germany 2015

Rankings:

JUVE Comment

This respected firm, where patent attorneys predominate, proved that it is serious about building up a mixed litigation team by adding its first lawyer to the partnership, and, on the patent attorney side, bringing in patent attorney Emmerling, who is experienced in mobile communications suits, and a partner from Eisenführ experienced in electronics patents. Prüfer thus remains one of the most dynamic firms in Munich. The firm is excellently positioned as a prosecution practice, but to raise its visibility as a litigation firm it could capitalize on the rising activity by NPEs in Germany. Prüfer is currently visible in proceedings for regular clients like Brother and Sandos-Hexal.
