Legal 500 Deutschland 2021 – Marken

Markenrecht

Preu Bohlig & Partner feierte 2019 das sechzigjährige Bestehen und konnte neben einer traditionell starken marken-, design- und wettbewerbsrechtlichen Praxis auch eine positive Bilanz in Bezug auf den Ausbau der Schnittstellenkompetenz zum IT- und Datenschutzrecht ziehen, was insbesondere die Expertise des Teams im Pharmarecht ergänzt. Man berät sowohl zu Portfolioentwicklungsfragen als auch in streitigen Auseinandersetzungen wie unter anderem im Rahmen der Eintragung von Schutzrechten sowie in nationalen und internationalen Verletzungsverfahren. Grenzbeschlagnahmen und die Verfolgung und Bekämpfung von Schutzrechtsverletzungen auf Messen gehören ebenfalls zum Beratungsspektrum. Der große deutsche Mandantenstamm wird durch eine wachsende Zahl bekannter internationaler Unternehmen ergänzt, nicht zuletzt durch den Pariser Standort der Kanzlei. Die Leitung der Praxisgruppe haben neben Astrid Gérard (Beratung und Prozessführung), Andreas Haberl (Verletzungsverfahren und parallele Rechtsbestandsverfahren), Torben Düsing (Marken-, Design- und Wettbewerbsrecht) und Matthias Hülsewig (Patent- und Gebrauchsmusterrecht) die hauptsächlich in der Prozessführung tätigen Jürgen Schneider, Ludwig von Zumbusch und Christian Donle inne.

JUVE Comment

This German law firm reinvented itself a few years ago and now has a strong profile in litigation for Mittelstand clients, among whom it is also well established thanks to excellent connections to pure patent attorney firms. What also sets Preu Bohlig apart from competitors in large international firms and IP boutiques is how its young team of partners has prioritised these clients first. This setup has given the partners a wealth of experience in a wide variety of technical fields. Furthermore, they have a strong client base among auto suppliers and in the pharma sector. The staffing additions of recent years have given the firm an entrepreneurial boost, which has lent momentum to business development. With two partners operating on the interface between patents and pharma regulatory law, the firm is in an excellent starting position to litigate for drugs manufacturers. One highlight was litigation for Hikma against Elli Lilly concerning pemetrexed. Berlin senior partner Donle boasts an outstanding reputation for litigation in mobile communications cases and Huawei is a long-time client. He is currently representing the Chinese mobile communications manufacturer in the high-profile connected cars dispute as the key intervener for Daimler against Nokia.

Law Firm of the Year for IP

In this category, the JUVE editorial team awards prizes to law firms that are developing particularly dynamically in trademark, patent and competition law.

Here, the presence in important lawsuits, the support of high-profile clients in contract drafting and portfolio management as well as personnel development play a particularly important role.

iam Patent 1000

A mainstay of the German market for more than 60 years, Preu Bohlig is home to 30 attorneys at law working from four offices located throughout Germany and a fifth in Paris. Telecoms is a stronghold for the firm, which this year went out to bat for Huawei in myriad infringement and nullity proceedings against various NPEs. Leading the charge here is Christian Donle, who also lectures regularly as an honorary professor at a university in Berlin. This eminent mind proves a formidable opponent – one rival remarks: “Donle is one of the few lawyers I’m scared of, because he has brilliant ideas. He’s an exceptional character who makes me think.” Another big-name client at the firm is Hewlett Packard Enterprises, which cosmopolitan attorney at law Alexander Harguth is representing in a complex web of patent infringement suits. He is frequently on his feet at the EPO and the Federal Patent Court; network technologies are aspeciality.
