Comment: This highly recommended firm in trademarks and unfair competition reeled in new work, such as advice to a lottery provider on its market entry and litigation for a carpet manufacturer in various infringement proceedings. Existing clients are also keeping Loschelder busy, e.g. advice and litigation for Henkel and 1&1 in a series of proceedings. The low leverage is making it difficult for the practice to branch into other fields such as technical protection rights.
Strengths: Litigation. Advice on geographic-origin indications and quality marks.
Recommended: Prof. Dr. Michael Loschelder (“foremost expert on geographic-origin indications”, competitor), Dr. Thomas Schulte-Beckhausen (“brilliant mind”, competitor,) Dr. Stefan Maaßen, Dr. Volker Schoene.
Practice: Advice predominates, as well as litigation in unfair competition, trademarks and design law (registration to litigation). Advice to manufacturer associations in connection with quality marks, frequently with an antitrust connection. Advice to trading companies on the interface with food, labeling, wine and agricultural law. Member of the Terralex network. (3 equity partners, 2 associates)
Clients: ?? Unfair competition and trademark litigation for Henkel regarding detergent and cleaning agents; ongoing unfair competition activity for 1&1; all-round trademark activity for Klosterfrau, incl. administration; lottery provider on market entry; carpet manufacturer on design law; Swiss luxury watch manufacturer on trademarks and in plagiarism proceedings.
