Competition and IP Litigation

In hardly any other legal area is the right litigation strategy so important as in competition and industrial property rights law. This begins with the selection of the ideal court from among the many possible courts with local jurisdiction and continues with the choice between urgent relief and main proceedings taking account of the individual tendencies of the chamber selected up to the manner in which the facts and legal assessment are presented. We have clear ideas as to when counterclaims or nullity claims are appropriate in order to defeat protective rights.

Our know-how also extends to the service of claims and injunctions at trade fairs or abroad and to foreign execution proceedings. We are aware of possible short-cuts. You benefit accordingly. Our experience includes trademark litigation before the General Court of the European Union or the clarification of legal questions before the European Court of Justice.
