Despite its small size, this Ruhr Valley firm respected in patents, primarily for filing, remains one of the most visible west German prosecution firms, along with Cohausz & Florak. The firm had to cope with the retirement of its most prominent partner, Dr. Rainer Albrecht, but had already bolstered the team with a patent attorney for its specialties in mechanics, engineering and electronics. In litigation, AH is esp. present in opposition and nullity suits as well as cancellation proceedings. The firm is not as visible in infringement proceedings as Cohausz & Florak, partly because its regular clients are not so litigious.
