JUVE Comment

Since its inception in early 2017, this small Munich patent attorney outfit has become a serious contender in litigation. One focus lies on mechanical engineering, often on the interface with digital technology and IT. Clients and competitors alike praise the experienced patent attorneys, which regularly appear at the side of law firms in infringement cases, e.g. for core client HTC concerning mobile communications and lighting technology for smartphones. In both litigation and prosecution work, the firm takes a distinct international approach, with clients not only from Europe from around the globe. Canadian medical technology provider, Neovasc Tiara, for example, instructed the firm for entitlement and nullity actions, as well as patent applications.
