The ‘goal and practice-oriented advice’ and the ‘high-service level’ at HOYNG ROKH MONEGIER contribute to the ‘very good reputation’ of its patent law team, which is led by practice head Martin Köhler. The firm has broad technical expertise with a particular focus on electronics, telecoms, biotechnology and pharmaceuticals, optical equipment manufacturing and the automotive sector. The European IP boutique merged with French patent firm Véron & Associés in March 2018, which further strengthened its international positioning. Klaus Haft represented Carl Zeiss in one of the most significant patent law disputes with Nikon, while Köhler and Mirko Weinert acted for Samsung in several infringement proceedings and parallel nullity and opposition proceedings against Fundamental Innovation Systems. A highlight in the telecoms sector was ‘excellent negotiator’ Kay Kasper’s representation of Telekom Deutschland. Tobias Hessel is noted for ‘his meticulous advice, which includes many neighbouring aspects, and his quick and reliable responses’. Christine Kanz, Christian Osterrieth and Stefan Richter are other key figures in the team.
