JUVE Comment

The size of this patent-attorney firm in Stuttgart has allowed it to be active on a broad range of work with notable litigation firms in infringement cases, e.g. glue manufacturer Uhu with Hoyng ROKH Monegier in a case against Henkel. Work in China has increased considerably, with the firm able to rely on an informal network for infringement cases before Chinese courts. Dreiss coordinates proceedings, e.g. for engineering company Ersa, vacuum specialist J. Schmalz and Swiss auto supplier Kinetix. With its strong share of filing work, the firm is a market leader in southwest Germany. Besides its long-standing, midsized clients, corporates such as Nokia also bank on the prosecution know-how of Dreiss’ patent attorneys.
