Munich IP boutique Wuesthoff & Wuesthoff is known for its "high quality" patent prosecution work and technically gifted attorneys. Although prosecution is its mainstay, the firm also offers contentious advice. Its mixed practice of 30 attorneys and lawyers represents Airbus, Olympus, LG and Scania among others.
The firm's recent highlights have all come on the contentious side. One matter sees Axel Katérle involved in litigation for LG against Mitsubishi Electric. Additionally, Bernhard Thum is representing Polymedicure in a dispute with B.Braun Melsungen relating to catheters.
The firm has an excellent reputation with clients. One, who uses it for patent and trade mark prosecution, says: "It delivers high quality work, it is a little bit conservative sometimes in terms of its processes, but the quality is very high and it is very reliable. We analyse the firms we use in terms of the time it takes them to draft something. Wuesthoff, in this respect, is very good." Silvia Schicker is highlighted as "really good". "She has a very good understanding of the technical side of things, so we can give her very complex cases and get a very quick response," notes another client.
Partners Gert Würtenberger and Roland Kunze left the firm in November 2011 to launch their own firm Würtenberger Kunze.
