This Munich IP firm has a midsized filling practice with a high proportion of international clients. W&W has been increasing its activity for regular clients, who are filing more patents, for some time and has now added companies from the Mittelstand and the startup scene to these. The patent attorneys also litigate in a broad technical spectrum. If the patent attorneys would step up activity to position themselves as litigation specialists for certain sectors, as Samson & Partner has managed in mobile communications, they could generate more attention. The best-known litigation client is Sram, for whom W&W is fighting a bicycle components case, together with Klaka.
