JUVE Comment

Few patent attorney firms boast such a wealth of litigation experience as this small, recommended outfit in Düsseldorf and Munich. The firm carved out this reputation earlier than other competitors and demonstrated it yet again with its successful litigation for ECC in the coffee capsule dispute against Nespresso. As usual, the firm was also very present in proceedings in the life sciences sector, incl. the extensive opposition suits for AbbVie, Bayer and OrbusNeich. König can rely on solid filing activity for a very loyal client base.

Litigation by patent attorneys, often in cases of a precedent nature, primarily for biotech and pharmaceuticals companies; mechanics patents.
