JUVE Comment

A Munich-based patent attorney firm which is highly recommended for both filing and litigation. After an extensive selection process, the firm made it onto the Google panel, for which it now files patents. The firm’s visibility stems increasingly from litigation in the life sciences sector, where it works as part of an international team. The firm will need to find a suitable growth strategy to continue coping with the high workload. If it manages to do so, some of its patent attorneys, e.g. Katérle, may be candidates as litigation specialists in the major proceedings expected at the UPC.
