Eisenführ Speiser is “the gift that keeps on giving”: “It not only has excellent expertise in litigation, but also a strong prosecution team for both patents and trademarks. It really is an outstanding firm that you can count on to provide best-in-class advice and an unparalleled service.” The set serves a wide client base across Europe and beyond, but is at its best when working with German companies which are leaders in their industries. Futureproofed portfolio management, anti-counterfeiting and border seizure services, representation in all kinds of disputes and comprehensive contractual advice are all provided by its hybrid team of patent attorneys and attorneys at law, who take a collaborative and inter-disciplinary approach to every brief. The offering was boosted in 2019 by the arrival of Andreas Ebert-Weidenfeller, who continues to make an impact, managing Dr Becher’s portfolio of 150 trademarks as well as that of a large wine distributor. Focusing his efforts on infringement issues and the negotiation of licensing agreements is Julian Eberhardt, a master tactician with years of courtroom experience to draw on. His fellow litigator is Rainer Böhm, whose wide knowledge of everything from licensing and antitrust issues to internet and advertising law makes him a repository of trust for clients. In the words of one: “Rainer and all his team provide sophisticated analysis with precise recommendations that inspire confidence about the course of action we choose to adopt. The firm’s respect for clients’ particular needs and diligence in towards meeting deadlines is always on point.”
