This pure patent attorney firm operates a renowned prosecution practice. Few other such firms boast so many partners experienced in litigation and such an impressive list of litigation clients. Mobile communications litigation for manufacturers predominates. S&P is present in virtually all the high-profile NPE suits on the side of the defendant, e.g. Deutsche Telekom, Nokia or Apple. The firm litigated for the iPhone manufacturer with Intel in a major suit by Qualcomm. But this depth of activity in the sector is leading to conflicts of interest: S&P was unable to work on the since-settled Nokia/Apple dispute. So as not to risk losing their excellent starting position for the UPC, the partners will have to keep an eye on the expansion of technical expertise at Bird & Bird and Hoyng ROKH Monegier, with whom they work closely. But S&P also boasts lots of direct company contacts and a wealth of litigation experience. Unlike litigation, which focuses on mobile communications, prosecution work is much broader with many technical fields.
Prosecution related to electronics, software, IT and mechanics. Litigation involving mobile communications and electronics.
