The team is proactive and very qualified.’

All our requests always received a prompt reaction.

The Reinhold Cohn team was very dedicated to our activity. Perfectly handled all patents examiners questions, remarks and doubts. The outcome was, that most patents were approved worldwide (more than 70) without or with minimal changes. They showed a lot of flexibility and creativity in their work to provide us with a well establish patent portfolio that creates for us a market “exclusivity” for the patents duration period. Several competitors looked on our patent portfolio and claimed that they will wait for their expiring date since they don’t see any way to make around them.’

Excellent responsiveness and sophisticated attorneys.’
