BOEHMERT & BOEHMERT is undisputedly one of the leading IP boutiques in Germany, not least due to its strong patent prosecution practice, the jury said, explaining the Tier 1 ranking in the field of “Patent Prosecution”. The mixed legal and patent law firm handles a large proportion of applications in the market and has many years of experience in managing and building up extensive IP portfolios. The above-average size of the team of patent attorneys and attorneys-at-law also enables the firm to provide advice in a wide range of technology sectors.
BOEHMERT & BOEHMERT also received great recognition in the categories “Patent Litigation: Patent Lawyers” and “Patent Litigation: Solicitors”. The team has many years of experience in nullity and infringement proceedings as well as in opposition and appeal proceedings and is experienced in handling national, European and international proceedings.
In the area of “Trade Marks”, the jury emphasized that BOEHMERT & BOEHMERT distinguishes itself both through a strong application practice – including the management of extensive trademark portfolios – and through advising companies on the enforcement and defense of their intellectual property rights before European as well as German authorities. In addition to the German offices, the team can also draw on the expertise of the offices in Alicante, Paris and Shanghai and is thus ideally positioned for cross-border matters.
