The patent attorneys at this firm respected for its prosecution work file many priority patents for a multitude of regular clients from a wide array of sectors. They also file European patents on a much smaller scale for foreign companies. Litigation mainly plays a role within existing client relationships. The firm is hired less often than local competitor Cohausz & Florack for pure litigation work, because only a few individual patent attorneys have pronounced litigation profiles. Nonetheless, MHP is one of the most visible prosecution outfits in west Germany with its multitude of visible partners and a much broader technical setup than Ruhr firms like Rohr and Andrejewski Honke.
