Dompatent von Kreisler Selting Werner – Germany 2018

Rankings:

JUVE Comment

This Cologne IP firm is one of the most visible prosecution outfits in the Rhein-Ruhr region with an outstanding name for chemicals and pharmaceuticals patents. Dompatent was more visible than ever before in a number of high-profile infringement proceedings outside its specialist discipline. The firm litigated for Asus in an extensive mobile communications suit and defended regular client Wilkinson in a prominent dispute against Gillette over razors. Reducing Dompatent – as many competitors do – to just the life science and chemicals sector thus does not tell the whole story. The firm looks after a technologically diverse client base in prosecution, and if necessary, before the courts with external lawyers.
