“IAM Patent 1000 – 2016” – now with a total of four BOEHMERT & BOEHMERT partners.

In the now fifth edition of “IAM Patent 1000 2016 – The World´s Leading Patent Practitioners”, BOEHMERT & BOEHMERT has held on to its “highly recommended” ranking in the “Patent Infringement” category while being awarded a recommended ranking in the “Transactions” category. BOEHMERT & BOEHMERT's partners and patent law specialists Prof. Dr. H. Goddar, Christian W. Appelt and Dr. M. Engelhard, will also be highlighted this year as recommended “individuals”. A new addition is Dr. M. Rüberg, who will also be among the recommended “individuals”. Prof. Goddar is again listed as a “luminary” at the very top of the ranking list. According to the overall assessment, “BOEHMERT & BOEHMERT remains one of the pre-eminent names on the non-contentious IP scene. The firm files close to 4,000 patent applications annually with the EPO, DPMA and foreign patent offices on behalf of everything from start-ups to mid-size companies and multinationals. It also maintains a robust contentious arm, making it a persuasive option for one-stop shopping. Having spent time undertaking postdoctoral research in the University of Cambridge’s biochemistry department, Markus Engelhard is a technical mastermind who can astutely advise research institutions and government bodies on even the most esoteric matters. Munich-based Heinz Goddar is a former president of the Licensing Executives Society International; an authority on patent and licensing law, he frequently lectures on the subject. “Fantastic practitioner” Michael Rüberg has extensive in-house experience and specialises in IP portfolio management. With Osaka and Tokyo familiar terrain for him, Christian Appelt is a lodestar for Japanese clients.“ The full ranking is here
