This small, yet hard-hitting team is a respected litigation practice in Düsseldorf. The firm typically litigates for a large number of Mittelstand companies as defendants. Horn is also active for regular clients and foreign companies actively asserting their protection rights, e.g. Becker Marine Systems or Echosens. The team often works for international clients in partnership with firms from the international WSL network. This offers a solid basis for when the UPC system launches.
