Grünecker was again recognised as one of the leading law firms in Germany for patent prosecution. Regarding trademarks, Grünecker was able to improve further and now holds the top position in this area too. In addition, the firm was ranked in Tier 3 for patent litigation and unfair competition respectively.
"Grünecker impresses with one of the largest patent law teams in Germany, an excellent reputation on the market, broad sector expertise and an experienced contentious practice," the editors state. Grünecker is also recognized as one of the leading filing practices for EPA and DPMA patent applications. The team comprising patent attorneys and attorneys-at-law is also recommended for complaint, infringement and nullity proceedings.
In the area of trademarks, Legal500 particularly highlights the growth in the pharmaceutical, food and medical technology sectors and praises the team for its experience in handling international mandates, both in complex cross-border disputes and in shaping and managing international and sometimes global trademark and design portfolios.
Clients see Grünecker as their "go-to firm for IP matters in Germany" and appreciate the “friendly, highly qualified team”, which is characterised by “high professionalism and technical competence”.
