WTR 1000 2021 - BOEHMERT & BOEHMERT once again leading the way

In the new publication of "WTR 1000 - The World's Leading Trademark Professionals 2021", BOEHMERT & BOEHMERT is once again excellently positioned with the "Silver Level". 

BOEHMERT & BOEHMERT "[...] remains a frontrunner in the German trademark scene", is the assessment of the specialist publishing house. "Providing a 360-degree, cross-industry, cross-border service, it ranks among the top trademark filers in both Germany and the European Union, and maintains a strong focus on the Chinese and US markets."

Five BOEHMERT & BOEHMERT attorneys are also highlighted this year:
Peter Gross favours practical solutions to lengthy court proceedings and has a unique feel for the problems of me-too products.
Regarding Dr. Florian Schwab, it is said that he not only builds productive filing strategies, but also has a nose for fakes.
Dr. Björn Bahlmann is equipped with extended knowledge in the areas of competition and trade secrets. He excelled in restructuring international trademark portfolios as well as in drafting IP-related commercial agreements.
Dr. Volker Schmitz-Fohrmann has many „fans“ among German companies and multinationals, the specialist publisher states. He is not only a contact for portfolio strategies, but also for litigation and anti-counterfeiting. Industry colleagues honour his excellence in theory and practice. In addition, he is always "very precise and well prepared".
Attorney Dr. Ludwig Kouker is also mentioned in praise. As one of the "elder statesman", he knows his way around negotiating out-of-court settlements as well as licensing agreements, particularly within the consumer goods industry.

Every year, WTR 1000 identifies the leading law firms and personalities in trade mark law in 70 countries worldwide.
