Peterreins Schley – Germany 2021

JUVE Comment

This IP boutique remains well positioned for litigation with its lawyers and patent attorneys. Thomas Adam stood out most of all, with much activity for NPEs such as Solas (OLED displays) and Neodron (mobile communications). He litigates in a wide array of technical fields overall. Frank Peterreins is equally broadly positioned, with major series of actions for Boston Scientific (medical technology), Bose (headphones) and BorgWarner (camshaft adjusters). Prosecution work also displays a huge technical breadth. Such clients as Big Violex, Bose, Boston Scientific, BorgWarner and Insulet are looked after by the mixed team very comprehensively in prosecution and litigation. The firm, but especially the dual-qualified patent attorney and lawyer Peterreins, is unusually active in EPO oppositions for Boston Scientific, as well as for Hanwha Q-Cells concerning solar technology.
