White-collar crime > Advice to individuals Tier 5

Klinkert Rechtsanwälte PartGmbB's white-collar crime practice is led by the well-regarded Marijon Kayßer and while the team also assists damaged corporations, its prime focus lays on advice to individuals which the four-strong team represents in all stages of white-collar crime proceedings as well as in cross-border matters. Instructions mainly stem from the pharmaceutical, chemical and automotive industries as well as from the financial services sector, while matters pertaining to the violation of trade secrets constitutes another central pillar of the practice. Most recently, the group also acted in several cum/ex proceedings. Stefan Kirsch has longstanding experience in appeal proceedings and constitutional complaints.

Other key lawyers:

Klinkert Rechtsanwälte is a litigation and IP law firm. Besides, some of our partners advise selected industries, especially in the fields of sports, media & entertainment as well as pharmaceuticals and medical technology. We contribute our many years of litigation experience to the consulting practice because we know what requirements the advice given must meet in court. Conversely, our litigators benefit from the structuring options and negotiation tactics that result from our consulting practice.

We represent and advise our clients in disputes concerning industrial property rights and intellectual property (patents, trademarks, copyrights), in unfair competition law and for the protection of trade secrets.

In the field of commercial criminal law, we have extensive expertise and successful practice in advising and defending individuals and companies. Especially in the area of protection of secrets, our expertise and the integration of our civil and criminal law know-how is unique.

In the area of sports, we are counselling international transfers and sponsorship agreements and regularly advise the German Football League (DFL) on all aspects of the allocation of audiovisual rights for the German Bundesliga.

Most of our lawyers have worked in major international law firms for many years. As an independent law firm, we select patent attorneys, colleagues from other fields of expertise and foreign law firms freely and only on the basis of quality, expertise and personal trust. Thanks to our many years of experience in coordinating and managing multi-territorial disputes, we know first-hand which colleagues to recommend and involve for the specific task at hand for our clients.
