A respected Hamburg patent attorney firm which displayed far more dynamism than its north German competitors. By opening its third office, in Stuttgart, Glawe took a crucial step towards nationwide visibility. Here, solo lawyer Hössle, who is known for automotive and software patents, joined the firm. The move into Stuttgart strengthens Glawe’s preeminent national activity, but, at the same time, the firm is looking to harness the opportunities offered by the UPC system. Glawe is very visible here as Keussen is supporting the UPC preparatory committee as a representative of German patent attorneys. But Glawe will have to deepen its mixed approach, as, despite the litigation experience of a number of patent attorneys, the firm was not particularly visible in litigation work.
