Taliens – Germany 2019

JUVE Comment

In only two years, this international litigation firm made an impressive start. Since its launch, the spinoff of Paris and Munich lawyers from Olswang has acquired a solid position in the German market through its Munich team around Lynker. It has long defended core client ZTE against infringement suits from video pool MPEG LA. Taliens is also fighting on several fronts for TCL. The team has a clear focus on mobile communications and clients from this sector claim to be “very satisfied” with its work. The team has a broad technical range but is less present in pharma cases. The advice to a US originator manufacturer, however, is a first step here. A lateral with experience in this field would be logical.

Strengths

Mobile communications litigation.

European strategy

The Olswang spinoff has had an international setup since its launch in 2017. The concept is based on the strong positioning of the patents team around Jean-Frédéric Gaultier in France and Lynker in Munich as well as growing ties to ZTE, TCL and Boston Scientific. In Madrid, the firm works closely with the IP firm Bylos.
