Comment: This recommended firm for trademarks and unfair competition continues to build on its experience in the healthcare sector. Litigation for a large German mail-order pharmacy regarding the exclusion of rights of cancellation underscores the partners’ expertise in this field. Regular client GlaxoSmithKline is keeping the lawyers busy, esp. in unfair competition. Design law is gradually becoming another pillar, as shown by litigation for a global industrial lamp manufacturer. Here, the firm widened its spectrum to include protection rights aspects and corporate. IP partner Köhler put his plan to operate more on the interface with IT into action: he advised companies from the healthcare sector on software licensing.
Strengths: Litigation, advice to ?pharmaceuticals and healthcare and ?energy companies.
Recommended: Prof. Dr. Markus Köhler (“qualified and always collegial”, competitor), Dr. Christina Koppe-Zagouras, Dr. Timo Kieser (“results-driven and reputable”, client; “good litigator”, competitors).
