Comment: This respected trademarks and unfair competition practice is one of the most active litigation practices in the Rhine region and a specialist for cases of a precedent nature. This quality did not come to the fore in recent years, but ROP has now brought it into play more often before the Federal Court of Justice (Bundesgerichtshof) and ECJ. The lawyers conducted several proceedings for Thonet, Ferrari and Paul Green and also registered a sizeable number of trademarks for regular clients. Among the Düsseldorf IP boutiques, ROP traditionally boasts a strong international client base and the partners are seen as very internationally oriented. They are currently not as active in cross-border instructions, however, as Hoyng ROKH Monegier.
