JUVE Comment

Its close ties to Samsung are what get this Munich IP firm noticed most of all. Whenever the Koreans conduct patent litigation in Germany (mostly as the defendant), Z&P’s patent attorneys are the first choice, e.g. against NPEs Fipa and Unwired Planet. But the patent attorneys showed that they can handle more than mobile communications suits with work for Saint-Gobain in a classic dispute over painting technology. Ultimately, the busy litigation activity is based on a technically broad prosecution practice, though Z&P does not serve the life science sector as intensively as mobile communications and IT.
