Network – National
When intellectual property rights are enforced in the courts, due to the the legal position in Germany the plaintiffs and defendants must be represented by a lawyer. We have successfully worked alongside with a large number of lawyers and offices who are specialized on enforcing intellectual property rights in court proceedings. In this respect, our firm is not tied to specific lawyers or offices but rather can in each case recommend the specialists or a specialist firm best suited to that particular case. Our geographical proximity to and decades of collaboration with the most renowned German law firms specializing in intellectual property rights has allowed us to build up a network, primarily in Duesseldorf and Munich, which enables us to make the right selection of a suitable specialist for virtually every eventuality.
