JUVE Comment

The patent attorneys at this Munich IP firm are respected primarily for work in patent litigation, where they always operate alongside external lawyers. The patent attorneys are often part of the action when regular client Samsung is active in Germany’s courts. Although the proceedings involving the Korean company’s smartphones are over, Z&P benefits from Samsung’s setup as a conglomerate, with frequent litigation related to other technologies. Litigation predominates in work for some clients, e.g. GE Wind, whereas Z&P is active on an all-round basis for others, e.g. Medtronik, from portfolio management to litigation.
