JUVE Comment

This firm respected in patents remains visible in the market with a midsized filing practice. The patent attorneys boast experience in litigation and are called on by lawyers for infringement proceedings, where they work closely with a number of selected firms, e.g. Taylor Wessing for Nichia and Hoja. It thus came as a blow when patent attorney Dr. Friedrich Emmerling, who is experienced in litigation, went to Prüfer & Partner after just six months because of conflicts of interest. As well as his main client Huawei, B&R lost expertise in the mobile communications sector. B&R is thus back to where it was in early 2015, but was able to add litigation to its prosecution activity for Google.
