Silver - Firms: enforcement and litigation
BianchiSchwald responds rapidly and efficiently to trademark requests, thanks to its well-calibrated internal systems and guidelines; the expertise of its team – and particularly of IP head Christoph Gasser – also ensures quality advice and solutions are delivered. The firm, which is within easy reach, owing to its offices in Zurich, Geneva, Bern and Lausanne, has seen notable increases in its client base and workload recently and taken on greater responsibility for the likes of Johnson Controls and Canada Goose, whose Swiss and international prosecution and strategy needs it meets, and TikTok, for which it handles Swiss trademark applications. The key contact for these and many other household names is Gasser, who garners praise from all corners of the market: “Christoph is a passionate litigator and one of the very best IP lawyers in Switzerland, with an encyclopaedic knowledge of the law and of court practice. He grasps the key issues in any given case and navigates matters to a speedy resolution. He’s precise, strategic, well-connected globally, business minded and, on top of it all, very pleasant to work with.”
