Comment: This firm is respected in trademarks and unfair competition and made strides in practice development. Thanks to its specialty in digital business models, Fieldfisher inspires loyalty among notable US clients like Yelp and LinkedIn and is steadily adding to this group. The practice regularly benefits from the German partners’ nurturing of connections to US clients and the Silicon Valley offices. The positive track record was reflected in staff developments: two salary partners were appointed from the young soft IP team.
