Comment: This firm recommended in trademarks and unfair competition advises existing clients like Ferrero and Leica on an all-round basis. The practice widened its advisory spectrum with a salary partner from Keil & Schaafhausen, who works in trademarks and unfair competition as well as patents. Schiedermair thus staffed a previously unoccupied interface. Synergies arose in advice for the first time to Russian company Thor3D. Schiedermair is also strong on the IT/data protection interface: the team advised Coca-Cola regarding the GetHappy app and Varta on placing products in social media.
Strengths: Close links to ?distribution.
