Comment: A respected firm for trademarks and unfair competition which is steadily gaining ground. This is largely due to the high proportion of regular clients, many of whom are advised on formal trademark law, like Reemtsma. Luther added to its client list by taking on the notable Warsteiner instruction (global portfolio administration). The litigation practice picked up after last year: work for watch manufacturer Daniel Wellington shifted up a gear and the IP lawyers litigated intensively for new client Nomad, which was acquired through good contacts to international law firms.
Strengths: Advice to commercial enterprises.
Recommended: Dr. Detlef Mäder (“collegial and solution-oriented in extrajudicial negotiations”, competitor), Dr. Geert-Johann Seelig (“very good trademark and unfair competition lawyer, very collegial even in difficult proceedings”; “skilled negotiator, but also unrelenting in litigation”; “extremely competent and solution-oriented”, competitors).
Practice: All-round advice and litigation in trademarks (incl. trademark administration) and unfair competition. Frequent activity on the interface with ?IT and ?distribution law. (7 partners, 14 associates)
Clients: ?? Trademark litigation for Nomad; Daniel Wellington regarding product counterfeits; Imperial Tobacco/Reemtsma on trademarks; Galaxa in action for damages related to trademarks; ongoing activity for Kamps, VAG/Rexnord, Warsteiner Brauerei, Degussa Bank; Saint-Gobain Glass, Hexion, Ernst & Young on trademarks and unfair competition; ongoing activity for Harley-Davidson related to distribution network.
