Kurz Pfitzer Wolf & Partner Rechtsanwälte mbB
Kurz Pfitzer Wolf & Partner was founded as a boutique law firm in Stuttgart with the mission to provide excellent services to clients around the globe in IP and IT law. That focus, an excellent team and the use of modern technology have all contributed to making the firm and its clients a success story, with Kurz Pfitzer Wolf & Partner celebrating its 10-year anniversary in 2020.
Over the past decade, Kurz Pfitzer Wolf & Partner has gained a remarkable national and international reputation for the quality of its services.
Kurz Pfitzer Wolf & Partner is proud of its team of highly experienced professionals. The team has gained the trust of many clients and is especially well known for its IP litigation and enforcement skills. The team has received several national and international awards and accolades for its excellent work.
With the experience of hundreds of litigation cases in the past years and a successful track record, the team at Kurz Pfitzer Wolf & Partner is an ideal partner for clients seeking experienced litigators to enforce their rights. Many of the firm’s clients are enthused by just how quickly and at what low costs the firm can produce excellent results. Due to advantages offered by the German judicial system, the firm can – where necessary – usually obtain injunctions from German courts within days and the infringer generally has to reimburse all costs incurred in the process. This speed and cost efficiency are the reason that many clients choose Germany as their preferred jurisdiction in the European Union.
Besides litigation in Germany, Kurz Pfitzer Wolf & Partner is also frequently involved in cross-border litigation. For key clients, the firm manages worldwide litigation and develops the litigation strategy accordingly. This involvement in coordinating international litigation gives the firm excellent knowledge of the litigation process in many jurisdictions, so that it can provide valuable strategic advice to clients when facing infringements in and across various jurisdictions.
Kurz Pfitzer Wolf & Partner frequently develops new strategies and approaches to successfully fight counterfeiting in a fast-changing market, especially online. The firm works closely with Customs across Europe to protect its clients’ rights. The firm also cooperates with other firms and service providers to effectively fight counterfeiting.
