JUVE Comment

Competitors characterize this respected patent attorney firm as dynamic. Unlike other firms in the southwest, WWP is active for international corporates like Boeing and Sony with its extensive filing practice. The firm also frequently litigates for clients with external lawyers, e.g. for TomTom concerning navigation devices or for Harmann against France Brevets. Compared to other patents firms in Stuttgart, WWP need not worry about young talent: thanks to a systematic training strategy, it once again added two patent attorneys to the headcount from its own ranks.
