Comment: Because of its solid connections to Porsche and large German Mittelstand companies like Würth, this Stuttgart firm is among those respected in trademarks and unfair competition. The IP partners are renowned for their litigation experience, but are no longer considered as visible by competitors. This may be because LKP has not regained its previous strength since the spinoff last year when it lost US clients and young partners. An experienced associate went to CMS, but LKP quickly closed the gap with an experienced litigation specialist from Weickmann, who brought good contacts among Dutch companies.
Recommended: Prof. Dr. Thomas Sambuc, Dr. Kerstin Gründig-Schnelle, Dr. Rolf Diekmann.
