This respected Cologne IP firm remains one of the most visible prosecution outfits in west Germany, with an excellent name for chemicals and pharmaceuticals patents. The patent attorneys rarely appear in proceedings, but when they do, it is generally on the side of external lawyers. Following slight growth last year, a patent attorney went to a chemicals company, though this did not weaken the firm in its signature field.
Patent filing related to the pharmaceuticals, biotech and chemicals sectors.
Dr. Hans-Peter Jönsson, Dr. Jörg Helbing, Jochen Hilleringmann (all patent attorneys).
