Frankfurt, 10.01.2023 – The Frankfurt office of BOEHMERT & BOEHMERT can now be reached at a new address. The reason for the move from Freiherr-vom-Stein-Strasse 7 to the neighboring Feldbergstrasse 35 in Frankfurt’s West End is the pleasing growth of the Frankfurt office by several lawyers from various technology fields, which pushed the previous premises to their limits.
“The move to the new office space creates the prerequisite for further growth and, in perspective, gives us the opportunity to consistently continue the expansion of the IP practice at the Frankfurt location. Also and especially with regard to the addition of legal know-how to the team”, explains Dr. Karl-Heinz Metten, patent attorney and long-standing partner at BOEHMERT & BOEHMERT in Frankfurt.
The central location in the heart of Germany ensures short distances to German clients based in Hesse and other federal states. Not far from the main train station and Frankfurt Airport, the office in the Main metropolis also offers international clients very good accessibility.
In the new office in Feldbergstraße, clients can also expect competent advice across the entire spectrum of intellectual property law. The team focuses on patent prosecution and patent litigation, with expertise in the fields of chemistry, physics, IT/software, medical technology and mechanical engineering, as well as in the areas of employee invention law and design protection.
