JUVE Comment

This IP firm remains one of the most visible prosecution outfits in Munich. The firm is remaining true to its strategy as a pure patent attorney firm and works within a broad technical spectrum. Because of their activity for originators, the patent attorneys enjoy an excellent reputation for pharmaceuticals litigation, but also work for generics manufacturers. Although they are experienced in litigation and file many global patents for LG (one of the highest profile mobile communications manufacturers), the patent attorneys hardly appear at all in mobile communications proceedings. This harbors further potential, which the cautiously growing firm can tap by transferring its litigation expertise from pharmaceuticals to the electronics and communication team.
