IAM Patent 1000: Once again top marks for BOEHMERT & BOEHMERT attorneys

"Highly recommended" is the praise of the IAM jury again this year, which honours BOEHMERT & BOEHMERT with 1st place in the category "Prosecution and Nullity". A recommendation is also made for the areas "Transactions" and "Infringement".

Five BOEHMERT & BOEHMERT attorneys receive special recognition:

Dr. Michael Rüberg and Dr. Dennis Kretschmann are highlighted as „key figures on the contentious side“, who „match an impressively strategic approach with a wealth of licensing, technology transfer and employee invention know-how".

Dr. Michael Rüberg is an attorney at law „whose coordination of cross-border infringement disputes is silky smooth", while patent attorney Dr. Dennis Kretschmann also „shines in examination proceedings before patent offices both at home and abroad".

Words of recognition were also awarded to Dr. Heinz Goddar, the "lodestar on the prosecution side", and Christian W. Appelt, the "darling of internationally minded players from Japan, China and the United States". Both had made a name for themselves as administrators of an extensive patent portfolio on behalf of Intel Corporation and as a talented and successful writing duo.

The IAM jury also highlighted the expertise in the life sciences of patent attorney Dr. Markus Engelhard. He has excellent communication and analytical skills and always provides solutions which meet clients’ requirements while embracing their economic interests. Dr Markus Engelhard has been managing a large patent portfolio for Novo Nordisk since this year.
