JUVE Comment

This firm respected in patents operates a midsized filing practice focusing increasingly on international clients. This is partly thanks to the patent attorneys’ good reputation for litigation, esp. in electronics and mobile communications patents. The patent attorneys bank on sound connections to selected firms like Taylor Wessing, with whom they are working in a high-profile LED dispute for Nichia. Its litigation expertise allows B&R to position itself for new prosecution work. The firm was one of just a few other practices chosen by Google to put its litigation-focused filing strategy into practice in Europe.
