According to JUVE, the trademark attorneys of the large mixed IP law firm have been firmly anchored in the market for many years with their decentralized team structure and are particularly known for their work for large international mandates. This and the excellent relationships with Chinese groups show that BOEHMERT & BOEHMERT’s strength lies in all-round IP advice. An approach that is also convincing more and more large German and medium-sized clients and even start-ups.
In addition, a young generation of partners is committed to expanding the soft IP business and is also keeping an eye on relevant interfaces, for example with the IT or media practice.
According to JUVE, the firm’s frequently recommended attorneys include Dr. Volker Schmitz-Fohrmann, Dr. Martin Wirtz, Dr. Rudolf Böckenholt (“very good trademark attorney … always pleasant and fair in his dealings”, competitor) and Dr. Carl-Richard Haarmann (“good trademark and patent attorney”, client) as well as Dr. Eckhard Ratjen (“competent IP attorney, with a pragmatic approach”, competitor), Peter Gross (“committed trademark attorney with a good feel for the case”, competitor) and Dr. Sebastian Engels.
High level of expertise in music law and excellent industry network
In the legal field of “Media: Contract and Copyright Law”, the jury stated that BOEHMERT & BOEMERT’s high level of expertise in music copyright law was impressive. Dr. Martin Schaefer in particular is better networked than almost anyone else in the industry. In addition, Dr. Schaefer is requested for test cases and has the ability “to guide market-shaping processes into safe waters”.
Recommended in the legal field of “patent law” for three areas
In the previously published ranking of the online magazine JUVE Patent Germany 2023, the strong filing practice for innovative medium-sized and international companies in the legal field of patent law is emphasized. BOEHMERT & BOEHMERT received a recommendation from the jury in three categories: “Patent Filing”, “Litigation: Patent Attorneys” and “Litigation: Attorneys”.
According to JUVE Patent, the litigation work results from a strong patent application practice, which in turn is the result of patent applications for a large number of innovative medium-sized companies in a broad technical spectrum. In addition, the firm has also been successful in patent applications and oppositions for international corporations.
The JUVE Handbook of Commercial Law Firms is aimed at decision-makers in companies, in-house counsel and attorneys. The evaluations are based on research by the editorial team, evaluations of questionnaires for the individual areas of law, interviews with competitors, clients and the editorial team’s knowledge of the industry.
