JUVE Comment

A Munich IP firm which is primarily respected by the market for its prosecution work. The firm is steadily widening its filing activity, as loyal regular clients are filing more patents and German and international clients from the Mittelstand and the startup scene came on board. This was accompanied by many opposition suits. The positive development was reflected in the growing headcount, with three patent attorneys hired for mechanics. But the firm was not seen as frequently in infringement proceedings, where it always works with external lawyers.
