Consistently listed in *WTR 1000*’s sister publication, the *IAM Patent 1000*, Prüfer & Partner makes its first appearance in the trademark rankings this year thanks to its growing profile on the soft IP side. It is sought after for portfolio management and enforcement work both online and offline – and increasingly for litigation, thanks to the efforts of Andreas Jacob. State-of-the-art IT systems and digital solutions keep it ahead of the curve, while a sizeable worldwide network renders it highly capable on the global stage. Jacob is the firm’s co-managing partner and comes with a rarely seen level of anti-counterfeiting knowledge. He has recently been masterminding several trademark infringement actions for Knorr-Bremse, as well as managing its filing strategy and guiding the IP aspects of the restructuring of its entire product portfolio.
