For more than a century, businesses across Germany and beyond have turned to Prinz & Partner for far-sighted trademark protection and enforcement counsel, and reports indicate that the firm continues to keep up the good work. In the words of one client: “We highly appreciate the dependability, availability and excellent service of Prinz & Partner. Its team is committed to understanding our needs and we assign great importance to the advice it gives.” The rainmakers here are Adrian Kleinheyer and Werner Sulzbach, who together act as global advisers to Volvo’s trucks and buses division. In addition, Kleinheyer assists telecommunications giant Orange with all of its German trademark matters; handles all prosecution work for Tru Kids LLC (owner of the TOYS “R” US brand) across the European Union; and has appeared in a million-euro design infringement action on behalf of DSK in relation to light-emitting diode mirrors. Sulzbach, on the other hand, has acted on myriad pieces relating to Virgin Enterprises’ well-known VIRGIN trademark and provided extensive representation to cosmetics company Dr Hauschka.
