The team of patent attorneys at this Munich IP firm is still one of the most visible litigation outfits in the patent attorney scene for mobile communications patents. This is largely owing to the successful litigation for SLC. BJ has now litigated for new client Wilan, another major NPE. But the patent attorneys do not focus exclusively on NPEs, with frequent litigation on the industry side now, e.g. for ski binding manufacturer G3. They are also cleverly enhancing their prosecution portfolio, incl. filing for Amazon in Germany. Sooner or later this could translate into litigation activity.
Semiconductor and software patents, litigation involving mobile communications.
With its close cooperation with Noerr, BJ set the course for handling UPC proceedings early on. Its vast experience in mobile communications proceedings for US NPEs like Acacia Research and Marathon is another asset. The ties to Noerr as a traditional auto industry representative could soon be put to the test. If NPEs increasingly target the auto industry concerning connected cars, the Noerr patents team is likely to choose to represent manufacturers and not NPEs. This would also force BJ’s hand.
